2002 - Hellman Fellow

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Virus
  • Enzyme
  • Cell membrane

His primary areas of study are Virology, Cell biology, Viral entry, Virus and Lipid bilayer fusion. His work in the fields of Virology, such as Viral replication, intersects with other areas such as Ubiquitin ligase. His Cell biology research includes elements of Lipid bilayer, Cell membrane and Peripheral membrane protein.

As part of the same scientific family, Walther Mothes usually focuses on Viral entry, concentrating on Protein structure and intersecting with Antibody, Glycoprotein and Fusion mechanism. His research in Virus intersects with topics in Sexual transmission, In vitro, Semen and In vivo. His work in Lipid bilayer fusion covers topics such as Influenza A virus which are related to areas like Viral envelope.

His most cited work include:

  • Structure and immune recognition of trimeric pre-fusion HIV-1 Env (544 citations)
  • TRIM5 is an innate immune sensor for the retrovirus capsid lattice (482 citations)
  • Semen-Derived Amyloid Fibrils Drastically Enhance HIV Infection (440 citations)

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

Walther Mothes mainly investigates Virology, Virus, Cell biology, Viral entry and Biophysics. His studies in Virology integrate themes in fields like In vitro and In vivo. His Viral replication, Virus Release and Lipid bilayer fusion study in the realm of Virus connects with subjects such as Green fluorescent protein.

His Cell biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cell and Cell membrane. His work carried out in the field of Viral entry brings together such families of science as Protein structure, Cell adhesion, Gp41 and Fusion mechanism. The concepts of his Biophysics study are interwoven with issues in Glycoprotein, Biochemistry, Binding site and Allosteric regulation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Virology (42.20%)
  • Virus (36.70%)
  • Cell biology (33.03%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Virus (36.70%)
  • Virology (42.20%)
  • Biophysics (17.43%)

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

His main research concerns Virus, Virology, Biophysics, Viral entry and Glycoprotein. His work in the fields of Viral replication and Neutralization overlaps with other areas such as 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak. His work on Retrovirus as part of his general Virology study is frequently connected to Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science.

His Viral entry study combines topics in areas such as Viral envelope and Gp41. His Glycoprotein research includes themes of Protein structure, Hiv 1 envelope and Cell biology. His Cell biology research incorporates themes from NFKB1 and Antibody.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Associating HIV-1 envelope glycoprotein structures with states on the virus observed by smFRET (77 citations)
  • HIV-1 Env trimer opens through an asymmetric intermediate in which individual protomers adopt distinct conformations. (68 citations)
  • An Asymmetric Opening of HIV-1 Envelope Mediates Antibody-Dependent Cellular Cytotoxicity. (43 citations)

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

  • Virus
  • Enzyme
  • Immune system

Walther Mothes mostly deals with Viral entry, Virus, Biophysics, Glycoprotein and Trimer. He has researched Viral entry in several fields, including Gp41 and Allosteric regulation. His Gp41 research integrates issues from Membrane, Helix, Protomer and Binding site.

His Virus research is classified as research in Virology. His research integrates issues of Antibody and Cell biology in his study of Glycoprotein. Walther Mothes combines subjects such as Cell, Internalization, Dynamin, Immune system and Flow cytometry with his study of Antibody.
