Major scientific achievements

  • The oxygen effect of ionising radiation is due to chemical reactions and not to enzymatic repair (Nature 1975)
  • Produced the first DNA histograms of bacteria by flow cytometry (J. Bacteriol 1980).
  • Initiation of DNA replication in E. coli initiates in synchrony at multiple origins (EMBO Journal 1986).
  • The DnaA protein determines the initiation mass in coli (Cell 1989)
  • DNA methylation is a major determinant of timing and synchrony of initiation of DNA replication in E. coli (Cell 1990)
  • The mass at initiation in E. coli cells is not constant and varies with growth rate - in contradiction to the dogma (EMBO Journal 1994)
  • SeqA is a negative regulator of DNA replication in coli (Cell 1994, Cell 1995, PNAS 1996)
  • The mass at entry into S phase of pombe cells varies with growth rate (J.Cell Sci 1999)
  • There is no classical G1/S checkpoint in pombe, but this transition is governed by a novel mechanism (PNAS 2003)
  • The G1/S checkpoint is governed by the Gcn2 kinase (Genes Dev 2007)
  • Revision of the main mechanism to negatively regulate translation in all organisms (J. Cell Sci 2015, Curr Genet 2019)
