Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Enzyme

Yukihiko Kitamura focuses on Molecular biology, Pathology, Cell biology, Mast cell and Receptor tyrosine kinase. His Molecular biology study combines topics in areas such as Interleukin 3, Haematopoiesis, Proto-oncogene tyrosine-protein kinase Src, Transactivation and Microphthalmia-associated transcription factor. His Pathology study incorporates themes from Stomach, Transplantation and Bone healing.

The Cell biology study combines topics in areas such as Endocrinology, Osteopontin, Internal medicine, Growth factor and Osteonectin. His research on Mast cell concerns the broader Immunology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Cancer research, Stem cell factor, Mutation, Tyrosine kinase and Complementary DNA in addition to Receptor tyrosine kinase.

His most cited work include:

  • Gain-of-function mutations of c-kit in human gastrointestinal stromal tumors (3719 citations)
  • Targeted Disruption of Cbfa1 Results in a Complete Lack of Bone Formation owing to Maturational Arrest of Osteoblasts (3635 citations)
  • Defects of B-cell lymphopoiesis and bone-marrow myelopoiesis in mice lacking the CXC chemokine PBSF/SDF-1 (2122 citations)

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

Yukihiko Kitamura spends much of his time researching Molecular biology, Mast cell, Immunology, Internal medicine and Endocrinology. His Molecular biology research incorporates elements of Gene expression, In situ hybridization, Mutant, Microphthalmia-associated transcription factor and Bone marrow. His Mast cell study also includes

  • Pathology that intertwine with fields like Peritoneal cavity,
  • Stem cell factor which is related to area like Receptor tyrosine kinase.

His study focuses on the intersection of Receptor tyrosine kinase and fields such as Cancer research with connections in the field of Tyrosine kinase. His Immunology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Progenitor cell and Cell biology. In general Internal medicine study, his work on Uterus and Carcinoma often relates to the realm of Seminal vesicle, thereby connecting several areas of interest.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Molecular biology (48.80%)
  • Mast cell (30.85%)
  • Immunology (26.48%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2001-2020)?

  • Molecular biology (48.80%)
  • Mast cell (30.85%)
  • Immunology (26.48%)

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

Yukihiko Kitamura mostly deals with Molecular biology, Mast cell, Immunology, Pathology and Microphthalmia-associated transcription factor. His Molecular biology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Transfection, Antibody, Immunoglobulin superfamily, Cell adhesion molecule and Ratón. His Mast cell research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Stem cell factor, Cellular differentiation, Stem cell, Degranulation and Bone marrow.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Genetically modified mouse and Cell biology. His research in Cell biology intersects with topics in Osteopontin, Internal medicine and Gene expression, In situ hybridization. His studies in Receptor tyrosine kinase integrate themes in fields like Cancer research and Imatinib mesylate.

Between 2001 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Gain-of-function mutations of platelet-derived growth factor receptor α gene in gastrointestinal stromal tumors (586 citations)
  • Targeting of both mouse neuropilin-1 and neuropilin-2 genes severely impairs developmental yolk sac and embryonic angiogenesis (334 citations)
  • Transient and localized expression of bone morphogenetic protein 4 messenger RNA during fracture healing (322 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Enzyme

Yukihiko Kitamura mainly focuses on Pathology, Immunology, Cancer research, Mast cell and GiST. The various areas that Yukihiko Kitamura examines in his Pathology study include Mutation, Bone healing and In situ hybridization. In In situ hybridization, he works on issues like Chondrogenesis, which are connected to Molecular biology.

His work carried out in the field of Immunology brings together such families of science as C-Kit Ligand and Histamine. His Mast cell research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Wound healing, Cell and Stem cell. Yukihiko Kitamura has included themes like Tyrosine kinase and Receptor tyrosine kinase in his Imatinib mesylate study.
