Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Neuron

Yuan Xiang Tao focuses on Neuropathic pain, Dorsal root ganglion, Hyperalgesia, Neuroscience and Pharmacology. His RNA research extends to Neuropathic pain, which is thematically connected. The study incorporates disciplines such as Nerve injury, Peripheral nerve injury, Antisense RNA, Cell biology and Regulation of gene expression in addition to Dorsal root ganglion.

His studies deal with areas such as Nitric oxide synthase, Opioid receptor, Opioid and Chronic pain as well as Hyperalgesia. His Neuroscience study combines topics in areas such as NMDA receptor, Glutamate receptor, Neurotransmission and Synaptic plasticity. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Anesthesia, Nociception, Inflammation, PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway and Allodynia.

His most cited work include:

  • A long noncoding RNA contributes to neuropathic pain by silencing Kcna2 in primary afferent neurons (209 citations)
  • Spinal glutamate uptake is critical for maintaining normal sensory transmission in rat spinal cord (133 citations)
  • Persistent Inflammation Induces GluR2 Internalization via NMDA Receptor-Triggered PKC Activation in Dorsal Horn Neurons (132 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Neuropathic pain, Neuroscience, Pharmacology, Dorsal root ganglion and Spinal cord. The concepts of his Neuropathic pain study are interwoven with issues in Endocrinology, Nerve injury and Internal medicine, Sciatic nerve, Peripheral nerve injury. Yuan Xiang Tao has included themes like NMDA receptor, AMPA receptor, Glutamate receptor and Posterior Horn Cell in his Neuroscience study.

His Pharmacology research includes themes of Hyperalgesia, Nociception and Opioid. His work focuses on many connections between Dorsal root ganglion and other disciplines, such as Cell biology, that overlap with his field of interest in Neurotransmission. His Spinal cord research focuses on subjects like Anatomy, which are linked to Substance P.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Neuropathic pain (44.71%)
  • Neuroscience (38.24%)
  • Pharmacology (34.12%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Neuropathic pain (44.71%)
  • Dorsal root ganglion (33.53%)
  • Pharmacology (34.12%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Neuropathic pain, Dorsal root ganglion, Pharmacology, Downregulation and upregulation and Neuroscience. His research integrates issues of Endocrinology, Internal medicine, Sciatic nerve, Peripheral nerve injury and Spinal cord in his study of Neuropathic pain. Yuan Xiang Tao combines subjects such as Spinal nerve, Microinjection, EHMT2, Long non-coding RNA and Allodynia with his study of Dorsal root ganglion.

His research in Pharmacology tackles topics such as Hyperalgesia which are related to areas like Fentanyl and Prostaglandin E2. His Downregulation and upregulation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Morphine, DNA methylation, Nociception, Analgesic and Apoptosis. His Neuroscience research focuses on Chronic pain in particular.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Long noncoding RNA (lncRNA): a target in neuropathic pain (28 citations)
  • Development of a Mouse Pain Scale Using Sub-second Behavioral Mapping and Statistical Modeling (19 citations)
  • Contribution of DNMT1 to Neuropathic Pain Genesis Partially through Epigenetically Repressing Kcna2 in Primary Afferent Neurons. (16 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Neuron

His main research concerns Neuropathic pain, Dorsal root ganglion, Pharmacology, Peripheral nerve injury and Microinjection. His Neuropathic pain study incorporates themes from Posttraumatic stress and DNA methylation. His Dorsal root ganglion study deals with the bigger picture of Neuroscience.

His work in Pharmacology tackles topics such as Downregulation and upregulation which are related to areas like Analgesic and Morphine. The various areas that he examines in his Peripheral nerve injury study include CAMP response element binding, Endocrinology and Gene expression. The Microinjection study which covers Sciatic nerve that intersects with Allodynia, Opioid, Octamer transcription factor and Signal transduction.
