In many academic fields, research results are first published in academic journals. Here, among the articles included in the Web of Science bibliographic database of Clarivate Analytics, we will show the number of such articles published by researchers at Niigata University and those that are particularly referred to worldwide in each field.
The total number of articles and reviews by researchers at Niigata University that have been published in the last five years are shown for each year.

Multiple ways are available to evaluate whether an academic publication is rated high worldwide. One is to determine based on citations. Excellent publications will be cited in the publications that follow, resulting in a high number of citations. In this method, we set the group by year and field, ranking each publication based on the number of citations in descending order, measuring where in the top percentage of the group the publication is placed. Here, we will show introduce articles whose primary authors are researchers at Niigata University. The publications are from in the last five years and from those highly evaluated the most often referred to worldwide (top 1% by citations), and are cited in the top one percent for each of the 22 research fields (ESI fields) established by the Web of Science.

Protein sequence data, as well as gene sequences, are becoming to be shared to all researchers around the world. The jPOST repository (jPOSTrepo) was developed as the first international standard proteome data repository in the Asia-Oceania region. The jPOST repository plays a role as a reusable data sharing platform for proteome data studied all over the world.

Lipid transfer between cell membrane bilayers at contacts between the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and other membranes help to maintain membrane lipid homeostasis. We found that two similar ER integral membrane proteins, oxysterol-binding protein (OSBP)-related protein 5 (ORP5) and ORP8, tethered the ER to the plasma membrane (PM) via the interaction of their pleckstrin homology domains with phosphatidylinositol 4-phosphate (PI4P) in this membrane. Their OSBP-related domains (ORDs) harbored either PI4P or phosphatidylserine (PS) and exchanged these lipids between bilayers. Gain- and loss-of-function experiments showed that ORP5 and ORP8 could mediate PI4P/PS countertransport between the ER and the PM, thus delivering PI4P to the ER-localized PI4P phosphatase Sac1 for degradation and PS from the ER to the PM. This exchange helps to control plasma membrane PI4P levels and selectively enrich PS in the PM.
