The paradigm shift in collagen research during the early 1970s marked by the discovery of the collagen precursor molecule procollagen was traced using co-citation analysis and title word frequency determination, confirming previous work performed by Henry Small. 
Paradigm shifts. Part II. Reverse Transcriptase. Analysis of reference stability and word frequencies
The reverse transcription paradigm shift in RNA tumor virus research marked by the discovery of the reverse transcriptase in 1970 was traced using co-citation and title word frequency analysis. It isExpand

Conversion of procollagen to collagen is likely to occur in vivo by a proteolytic mechanism and the additional peptide sequences in Procollagen may serve to initiate chain association in triple-helix formation, to facilitate molecular transport, and to inhibit intracellular fibrogenesis. Expand
A Co-Citation Model of a Scientific Specialty: A Longitudinal Study of Collagen Research
The phenomenon of specialization in science is receiving increasing attention as it becomes clear that the 'specialty' is the principal mode of social and cognitive organization in modern science.Expand
The nature of the collagen synthesized by cultured human fibroblasts.
The hydroxyproline-containing proteins (hyproproteins) synthesized by cultured human fibroblasts have been partially characterized and may represent a modified form that functions in the transport of collagen from the cell to the fiber. Expand
Procollagen peptidase: an enzyme excising the coordination peptides of procollagen.
The enzyme activity is absent in dermatosparaxic connective tissues, thus suggesting that dermatosParaxis is caused by the absence of a normal enzyme function rather than by the production of an abnormal collagen. Expand
Matching Medline/PubMed data with Web of Science: A routine in R language
A novel routine that allows the user to match data from Medline/PubMed with records indexed in the ISI Web of Science database, based on the R language, and the steps the user should follow to perform the matching across the two databases is presented. Expand
The Structure of Scientific Revolutions
A good book may have the power to change the way we see the world, but a great book actually becomes part of our daily consciousness, pervading our thinking to the point that we take it for granted,Expand
