Abstract

As discovered over the past 25 years, the cytoskeletons of bacteria and archaea are complex systems of proteins whose central components are dynamic cytomotive filaments. They perform roles in cell division, DNA partitioning, cell shape determination and the organisation of intracellular components. The protofilament structures and polymerisation activities of various actin-like, tubulin-like and ESCRT-like proteins of prokaryotes closely resemble their eukaryotic counterparts but show greater diversity. Their activities are modulated by a wide range of accessory proteins but these do not include homologues of the motor proteins that supplement filament dynamics to aid eukaryotic cell motility. Numerous other filamentous proteins, some related to eukaryotic IF-proteins/lamins and dynamins etc, seem to perform structural roles similar to those in eukaryotes.

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 23 May 2019.
All research outputs
#4,932,040
of 17,829,175 outputs
Outputs from Sub cellular biochemistry
#55
of 295 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#86,861
of 274,768 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Sub cellular biochemistry
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 17,829,175 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 72nd percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 295 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.2. This one has done well, scoring higher than 81% 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 274,768 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
