Separase proteolytically removes cohesin complexes from sister chromatid arms in meiosis I, which is essential for chromosome segregation. Regulation of separase activity is essential for proper cell cycle progression and correct chromosome segregation. Onset of endogenous separase activity has not yet been observed in live oocytes.We describe here a method for detecting separase activity in mouse oocytes in vivo. This method utilizes a previously described cleavage sensor made up of H2B-mCherry fused with Scc1(107-268 aa)-YFP. The cleavage sensor is loaded on the chromosomes through its H2B-tag, and the signal from both mCherry and YFP is visible. Upon separase activation the Scc1 fragment is cleaved and YFP dissociates from the chromosomes. The change in the ratio between mCherry and YFP fluorescence intensity is a readout of separase activity.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 5. 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 04 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 has received more attention than most of these and is in the 73rd percentile.
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 86% 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 68% 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
