What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Immune system
  • DNA

Wayne M. Yokoyama mostly deals with Immunology, Natural killer cell, Receptor, Interleukin 12 and Interleukin 21. Many of his studies on Immunology apply to Cell as well. His work deals with themes such as Perforin and HLA-B Antigens, Human leukocyte antigen, which intersect with Natural killer cell.

His Receptor study incorporates themes from MHC class I, Gene and Effector. His Gene research includes themes of Molecular biology and Virus. Wayne M. Yokoyama has researched Interleukin 21 in several fields, including Natural killer T cell, Antigen-presenting cell and Cell biology.

His most cited work include:

  • Innate or Adaptive Immunity? The Example of Natural Killer Cells (1717 citations)
  • Licensing of natural killer cells by host major histocompatibility complex class I molecules (1057 citations)
  • Embryonic and Adult-Derived Resident Cardiac Macrophages Are Maintained through Distinct Mechanisms at Steady State and during Inflammation (723 citations)

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

His main research concerns Immunology, Cell biology, Receptor, Interleukin 21 and Natural killer cell. As a member of one scientific family, Wayne M. Yokoyama mostly works in the field of Immunology, focusing on Cytotoxic T cell and, on occasion, T cell. His Cell biology research incorporates elements of Cell, Cell growth, Cytokine, CD8 and NKG2D.

Wayne M. Yokoyama combines subjects such as MHC class I, Gene and Effector with his study of Receptor. His Interleukin 21 study combines topics in areas such as Interleukin 12 and Cellular differentiation. He usually deals with Lymphokine-activated killer cell and limits it to topics linked to Natural killer T cell and Immune receptor.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (40.26%)
  • Cell biology (38.53%)
  • Receptor (34.20%)

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

  • Cell biology (38.53%)
  • Immunology (40.26%)
  • Immune system (14.29%)

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

Wayne M. Yokoyama focuses on Cell biology, Immunology, Immune system, Innate lymphoid cell and Natural killer cell. The Cell biology study combines topics in areas such as Cell, Uterus, Receptor, Major histocompatibility complex and Antigen presentation. His Receptor research integrates issues from RNA, Proteasome and Effector.

His biological study focuses on Chronic infection. His studies in Immune system integrate themes in fields like Virus, Virology and Stromal cell. His studies deal with areas such as Inflammation and Atopic dermatitis as well as Natural killer cell.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • WDFY4 is required for cross-presentation in response to viral and tumor antigens (82 citations)
  • Group 3 innate lymphoid cells mediate early protective immunity against tuberculosis. (67 citations)
  • Uterine Natural Killer Cells. (44 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Immune system
  • DNA

Wayne M. Yokoyama mainly investigates Cell biology, Innate lymphoid cell, Immunology, Toxoplasma gondii and Uterus. His Cell biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cell, Inflammation, Adoptive cell transfer, Decidua Basalis and Uterine tissue. Within one scientific family, Wayne M. Yokoyama focuses on topics pertaining to Major histocompatibility complex under Cell, and may sometimes address concerns connected to In vivo.

His Inflammation research includes themes of Natural killer cell, Haematopoiesis and Immune tolerance. His study on Murine roseolovirus is often connected to Idiopathic pneumonia syndrome as part of broader study in Immunology. His study explores the link between Uterus and topics such as Embryo that cross with problems in Immune system.
