Abstract

Sortase is a cysteine-transpeptidase that anchors LPXTG-containing proteins on the Gram-positive bacterial cell wall. Previously, sortase was considered to be an important factor for bacterial pathogenesis and fitness, but not cell growth. However, the Actinomyces oris sortase is essential for cell viability, due to its coupling to a glycosylation pathway. In this chapter, we describe the methods to generate conditional srtA deletion mutants and identify srtA suppressors by Tn5 transposon mutagenesis. We also provide procedures for analyzing cell morphology of this mutant by thin-section electron microscopy. These techniques can be applied for analyses of other essential genes in A. oris.

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 17 January 2018.
All research outputs
#9,910,838
of 12,379,581 outputs
Outputs from Methods in molecular biology
#4,191
of 8,327 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#239,397
of 349,163 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Methods in molecular biology
#750
of 1,468 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,379,581 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 8,327 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.1. This one is in the 31st percentile – i.e., 31% 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 349,163 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 18th percentile – i.e., 18% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1,468 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 31st percentile – i.e., 31% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
