With the progress in our understanding of germ cell development, there is an emerging need to investigate the mechanisms of mRNA translation functioning in these cells. Indeed, posttranscriptional regulations of gene expression drive the most important transitions of the germ cell life cycle. Here we describe a strategy to measure mRNA translation in the oocyte, taking advantage of an approach originally developed to identify the transcriptome of a subgroup of cells in a complex cell mixture. This technique takes advantage of the "RiboTag" approach to express an HA-tag on the large ribosomal subunit of the ribosomes in the oocyte. Immunoprecipitation of the extracts followed by qPCR or RNAseq is used to identify mRNAs actively translated.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 02 July 2018.
All research outputs
of 21,192,559 outputs
Outputs from Methods in molecular biology
of 11,944 outputs
Outputs of similar age
of 296,919 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Methods in molecular biology
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 21,192,559 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 44th percentile – i.e., 44% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 11,944 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.3. This one has done well, scoring higher than 76% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 296,919 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 55% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
