Abstract

Just as it is important to understand the cell biology of signaling pathways, it is valuable also to understand mechanical forces in cells. The field of mechanobiology has a rich history, including study of cellular mechanics during mitosis and meiosis in echinoderm oocytes and zygotes dating back to the 1930s. This chapter addresses the use of micropipette aspiration (MPA) to assess cellular mechanics, specifically cortical tension, in mammalian oocytes.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. 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
#17,112,544
of 21,192,559 outputs
Outputs from Methods in molecular biology
#6,820
of 11,944 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#226,305
of 296,919 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Methods in molecular biology
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 21,192,559 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% 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 is in the 26th percentile – i.e., 26% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
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 is in the 12th percentile – i.e., 12% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
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
