Abstract

Development of fluorescence distribution assays like FRAP (fluorescence recovery after photobleaching) or photoactivation has had a great impact in studying intracellular protein dynamics. In particular, the cytoskeleton field largely benefited from these techniques, with lots of new information provided about the dynamics and organization of actin networks whithin cells.In mouse oocyte, actin photoactivation has been very useful to determine the dynamics of different actin structures involved in meiotic divisions, including a cytoplasmic meshwork and a subcortical actin layer.Here, we describe a method, actin photoactivation, to determine the dynamics of the actin cytoplasmic meshwork and the subcortical actin layer during the first meiotic division in the mouse oocyte, that could be adapted to other actin structures or other stages of meiotic divisions.

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
#11,697,432
of 13,171,980 outputs
Outputs from Methods in molecular biology
#6,005
of 8,463 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#233,023
of 268,353 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Methods in molecular biology
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,171,980 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 8,463 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.1. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% 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 268,353 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% 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
