Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Internal medicine

Werner Sieghart mostly deals with GABAA receptor, Receptor, Protein subunit, Cell biology and GABAA-rho receptor. To a larger extent, he studies Internal medicine with the aim of understanding GABAA receptor. His Receptor research integrates issues from Pharmacology and Binding site.

His Protein subunit study combines topics in areas such as Molecular biology, Axon initial segment and Function. The concepts of his Cell biology study are interwoven with issues in Neuroscience, Neuron and Postsynaptic potential. His study in GABAA-rho receptor is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cerebellum and Forebrain.

His most cited work include:

  • GABAA receptors : Immunocytochemical distribution of 13 subunits in the adult rat brain (1154 citations)
  • International Union of Pharmacology. LXX. Subtypes of γ-Aminobutyric AcidA Receptors: Classification on the Basis of Subunit Composition, Pharmacology, and Function. Update (780 citations)
  • Segregation of Different GABAA Receptors to Synaptic and Extrasynaptic Membranes of Cerebellar Granule Cells (758 citations)

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

Werner Sieghart mainly focuses on GABAA receptor, Receptor, Protein subunit, Biochemistry and GABAA-rho receptor. Werner Sieghart interconnects Endocrinology, Neuroscience, Pharmacology and Cell biology in the investigation of issues within GABAA receptor. The various areas that Werner Sieghart examines in his Neuroscience study include Gephyrin and gamma-Aminobutyric acid.

His Receptor research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Biophysics and Binding site. His Protein subunit study incorporates themes from Hippocampal formation and Molecular biology. He has researched GABAA-rho receptor in several fields, including Cerebellum, Inhibitory postsynaptic potential and Neurotransmission.

He most often published in these fields:

  • GABAA receptor (58.92%)
  • Receptor (50.00%)
  • Protein subunit (23.57%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2010-2021)?

  • GABAA receptor (58.92%)
  • Receptor (50.00%)
  • Neuroscience (16.56%)

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

Werner Sieghart focuses on GABAA receptor, Receptor, Neuroscience, Pharmacology and Protein subunit. Werner Sieghart works on GABAA receptor which deals in particular with GABAA-rho receptor. His Receptor research includes themes of Biophysics, Stereochemistry and Binding site.

Neuroscience connects with themes related to Gephyrin in his study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Agonist, Loreclezole, Antagonist and Ventral pallidum. His Protein subunit study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Hippocampus and Subiculum.

Between 2010 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A propofol binding site on mammalian GABAA receptors identified by photolabeling. (157 citations)
  • Patterns of mRNA and protein expression for 12 GABAA receptor subunits in the mouse brain. (141 citations)
  • Diazepam-bound GABAA receptor models identify new benzodiazepine binding-site ligands (137 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Amino acid

GABAA receptor, Receptor, Biochemistry, GABAA-rho receptor and Binding site are his primary areas of study. His studies deal with areas such as Gephyrin, Glycine receptor, Biophysics, Inhibitory postsynaptic potential and Cell biology as well as GABAA receptor. His Receptor research incorporates elements of Ethanol, Molecular biology, Protein subunit and Pharmacology.

In his research, Clinical pharmacology and Translation is intimately related to Neuroactive steroid, which falls under the overarching field of Protein subunit. His study in GABAA-rho receptor is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Habenula, Calretinin, GABAergic and Interneuron. His study looks at the relationship between Binding site and topics such as GABA Modulators, which overlap with Voltage clamp, Stereochemistry, 5-HT1 receptor, Functional selectivity and Drug Binding Site.
