Andreas Nebenführ, an associate professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Cellular and Molecular Biology, has two published articles that rank 10th and 35th among the top 100 most-cited articles published in the journal Plant Physiology, according to an article released by the journal on May 1, 2010. The 10th and 35th most cited articles are
A. Nebenführ, L. Gallagher, T.G. Dunahay, J.A. Frohlick, A.M. Mazurkiewicz, J.B. Meehl, L.A. Staehelin (1999). Stop-and-go movements of plant Golgi stacks are mediated by the acto-myosin system. Plant Physiology 121:1127-1141.
A. Nebenführ, C. Ritzenthaler, D.G. Robinson (2002). Brefeldin A: Deciphering an enigmatic inhibitor of secretion. Plant Physiology 130:1102-1108.
Nebenführ studies transport processes that play an important role in setting up and maintaining the differential distribution of cellular components from proteins to organelles in plants. His laboratory conducts research that spans a wide range of strategies, including cell-biological, biochemical, molecular, and genetic approaches, such as live-cell imaging, tissue culture, protein-protein interactions, mutant analysis, and proteomics.
Plant physiologists worldwide appreciate Nebenführ for freely making available many of his analytical tools for labeling cellular components. Earlier this spring, he demonstrated the use of these tools to aspiring young scientists who visited UTK in the Junior Sciences and Humanities Symposium. Talented high school students from across the state attended the symposium to present their research findings and to learn more about research at the college level.
