Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Genetics

Her main research concerns Cell biology, Genetics, Molecular biology, Mitosis and Stem cell. Her Cell biology research includes themes of Spindle apparatus, Cell division, Adult stem cell, Asymmetric stem cell division and Centrosome. Her work on Homologous recombination, DNA repair and Candidate Gene Analysis as part of general Genetics research is frequently linked to Disease gene identification, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science.

Her Molecular biology research integrates issues from Poly-binding protein, Immunoprecipitation, Polyadenylation, Poly-Binding Protein I and Transcription factor. Her Mitosis research incorporates elements of Transforming growth factor beta, Premature chromosome condensation, Germ cell and Somatic cell. Her Stem cell study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Signal transduction and Germline.

Her most cited work include:

  • Orientation of Asymmetric Stem Cell Division by the APC Tumor Suppressor and Centrosome (634 citations)
  • Asymmetric Inheritance of Mother Versus Daughter Centrosome in Stem Cell Division (439 citations)
  • Concerted action of poly(A) nucleases and decapping enzyme in mammalian mRNA turnover (385 citations)

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

Her primary areas of investigation include Cell biology, Stem cell, Genetics, Germline and Asymmetric stem cell division. Yukiko M. Yamashita combines subjects such as Tissue homeostasis, Asymmetric cell division, Cell division and Centrosome with her study of Cell biology. Her Cell division study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Mitosis.

Her Centrosome course of study focuses on Spindle checkpoint and G2-M DNA damage checkpoint and Cell cycle checkpoint. She interconnects Cell, Stem cell division, Cellular differentiation, Adult stem cell and Somatic cell in the investigation of issues within Stem cell. Her Germline research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Lineage, Cell growth, Immortal DNA strand hypothesis, Developmental biology and Drosophila.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (75.45%)
  • Stem cell (51.50%)
  • Genetics (35.93%)

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

  • Cell biology (75.45%)
  • Stem cell (51.50%)
  • Genetics (35.93%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Cell biology, Stem cell, Genetics, Function and Gene. Her study in Cell biology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Niche and Drosophila. Her Stem cell research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Asymmetric stem cell division, Germline, Centrosome, Regeneration and Regulator.

Her Asymmetric stem cell division study combines topics in areas such as Evolutionary biology, Daughter and Organelle. The study incorporates disciplines such as Gene duplication, Asymmetric cell division and Caenorhabditis elegans in addition to Centrosome. As a part of the same scientific study, Yukiko M. Yamashita usually deals with the Regulator, concentrating on Germ cell and frequently concerns with Cellular differentiation.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • The modular mechanism of chromocenter formation in Drosophila. (18 citations)
  • Mechanisms of rDNA Copy Number Maintenance. (16 citations)
  • Satellite DNA-containing gigantic introns in a unique gene expression program during Drosophila spermatogenesis. (16 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Genetics

Yukiko M. Yamashita spends much of her time researching Cell biology, Genetics, Satellite DNA, Cytoplasm and Nucleus. Her Cell biology study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Germline. The Germline study combines topics in areas such as Gene duplication, Ciliopathy, PLK4, Centrosome and Asymmetric cell division.

Her Satellite DNA research focuses on subjects like Gene expression, which are linked to Drosophila genome, Cellular differentiation and Gigantism. Her studies deal with areas such as Cell cycle, Microtubule, Mitosis and Central spindle as well as Nucleus. Her research integrates issues of Niche, Centrosome duplication, Asymmetric stem cell division and Cell type in her study of Stem cell.
