Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • DNA
  • Gene
  • Enzyme

His main research concerns DnaA, Genetics, Binding site, Escherichia coli and DNA replication. His studies deal with areas such as Biophysics, SeqA protein domain and Cell biology as well as DnaA. Walter Messer works mostly in the field of SeqA protein domain, limiting it down to topics relating to Pre-replication complex and, in certain cases, Replication factor C.

In his study, Electrophoretic mobility shift assay is inextricably linked to Cooperativity, which falls within the broad field of Binding site. His Escherichia coli research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Transcription and Transcriptional regulation. His DNA replication study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Molecular biology, Plasma protein binding and DNA-binding protein.

His most cited work include:

  • The bacterial replication initiator DnaA. DnaA and oriC, the bacterial mode to initiate DNA replication. (288 citations)
  • Interaction of the Initiator Protein DnaA of Escherichia coli with Its DNA Target (228 citations)
  • Mechanism of origin unwinding: sequential binding of DnaA to double‐ and single‐stranded DNA (171 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

DnaA, Genetics, Molecular biology, Escherichia coli and DNA replication are his primary areas of study. Walter Messer has included themes like SeqA protein domain and Binding site in his DnaA study. His research investigates the connection between Genetics and topics such as Cell biology that intersect with problems in Cell and Cell division.

His Molecular biology research focuses on Mutant and how it connects with Enzyme assay, Enzyme and Antiserum. His research in Escherichia coli focuses on subjects like Microbiology, which are connected to Thymidine. His DNA replication research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Biophysics, DNA damage and Bacteria.

He most often published in these fields:

  • DnaA (64.81%)
  • Genetics (47.22%)
  • Molecular biology (38.89%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1996-2016)?

  • DnaA (64.81%)
  • Genetics (47.22%)
  • Escherichia coli (37.96%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His scientific interests lie mostly in DnaA, Genetics, Escherichia coli, DNA and DNA replication. His DnaA research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Molecular biology and Binding site. His Molecular biology research incorporates themes from Restriction fragment and Transcription.

His research in Escherichia coli intersects with topics in Plasmid, Replication Initiation, Bacillus subtilis, Cell biology and Streptomyces. His DNA research focuses on subjects like Stereochemistry, which are linked to Recognition sequence. His work is dedicated to discovering how DNA replication, Mutant are connected with Bacteria and other disciplines.

Between 1996 and 2016, his most popular works were:

  • The bacterial replication initiator DnaA. DnaA and oriC, the bacterial mode to initiate DNA replication. (288 citations)
  • Mechanism of origin unwinding: sequential binding of DnaA to double‐ and single‐stranded DNA (171 citations)
  • ATP– and ADP–DnaA protein, a molecular switch in gene regulation (163 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • DNA
  • Gene
  • Enzyme

Walter Messer focuses on DnaA, Biochemistry, Escherichia coli, Binding site and Genetics. His DnaA study is concerned with DNA replication in general. The various areas that Walter Messer examines in his DNA replication study include DNA footprinting and DNA-binding protein.

Walter Messer focuses mostly in the field of Escherichia coli, narrowing it down to topics relating to Plasmid and, in certain cases, Function, Fusion protein, N-terminus and Nucleotide. His work in Binding site tackles topics such as Cooperativity which are related to areas like Electrophoretic mobility shift assay. The DNA study combines topics in areas such as Molecular biology and Consensus sequence.
