Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Internal medicine

Genetics, Centromere, Chromosome segregation, Cell biology and Cohesin are his primary areas of study. The concepts of his Centromere study are interwoven with issues in Kinetochore and Aurora B kinase. His research integrates issues of Heterochromatin, Heterochromatin protein 1 and Cohesin loading in his study of Kinetochore.

He has researched Cell biology in several fields, including Molecular biology, Intraflagellar transport and Inner dynein arm. In his study, BUB1 is inextricably linked to Spindle checkpoint, which falls within the broad field of Cohesin. His Meiosis study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Homologous chromosome and Mitosis.

His most cited work include:

  • Analysis of the mouse transcriptome based on functional annotation of 60,770 full-length cDNAs (1378 citations)
  • The conserved kinetochore protein shugoshin protects centromeric cohesion during meiosis (485 citations)
  • Shugoshin collaborates with protein phosphatase 2A to protect cohesin (485 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Cell biology, Genetics, Meiosis, Cohesin and Centromere. His Cell biology study incorporates themes from Cell cycle, RNA-binding protein, Molecular biology and Chromosome segregation. His Meiosis study also includes fields such as

  • Homologous chromosome and related Genetic recombination,
  • Schizosaccharomyces pombe which intersects with area such as Gene expression.

His study in Cohesin is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Meiosis II and Heterochromatin. His Centromere study combines topics in areas such as Anaphase and Kinetochore, Aurora B kinase. The Kinetochore study combines topics in areas such as Spindle apparatus and Spindle pole body.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (51.19%)
  • Genetics (45.24%)
  • Meiosis (41.07%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2019)?

  • Cell biology (51.19%)
  • Meiosis (41.07%)
  • Genetics (45.24%)

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

Yoshinori Watanabe mainly focuses on Cell biology, Meiosis, Genetics, Chromosome segregation and Cohesin. Mitosis is the focus of his Cell biology research. His work deals with themes such as Schizosaccharomyces pombe, Homologous chromosome, Live cell imaging, DNA repair and Ploidy, which intersect with Meiosis.

His studies in Chromosome segregation integrate themes in fields like Spindle apparatus and Kinetochore. His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Centromere and Cohesin. The various areas that Yoshinori Watanabe examines in his Centromere study include Aurora B kinase and Phosphorylation.

Between 2015 and 2019, his most popular works were:

  • Meiotic DNA break formation requires the unsynapsed chromosome axis-binding protein IHO1 (CCDC36) in mice (78 citations)
  • Essential role of the Cdk2 activator RingoA in meiotic telomere tethering to the nuclear envelope (34 citations)
  • Pds5 Regulates Sister-Chromatid Cohesion and Chromosome Bi-orientation through a Conserved Protein Interaction Module (29 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Cancer

Yoshinori Watanabe focuses on Cell biology, Meiosis, Genetics, Telomere and Cohesin. Yoshinori Watanabe is interested in Mitosis, which is a field of Cell biology. His Meiosis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Homologous chromosome and DNA repair.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Centromere and Sister chromatids. The study incorporates disciplines such as Anaphase, Kinetochore and Cohesin complex in addition to Centromere. He has included themes like Aurora B kinase and Chromosome segregation in his Sister chromatids study.
