Abstract

The lin-14 locus of Caenorhabditis elegans plays an important role in specifying the normal timing and sequence of developmental events in the lateral hypodermal cell lineages. The results of gene dosage, complementation, and temperature-shift experiments indicate that the fates expressed by cells at successive stages of these cell lineages are specified by the level of lin-14 activity and that lin-14 acts at multiple times during development to control stage-specific choices of cell fate. Our observations suggest that during normal development a reduction in the level of lin-14 gene function causes the sequential expression of stage-specific cell fates.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. 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 20 July 2012.
All research outputs
#3,561,681
of 12,367,469 outputs
Outputs from Genes & Development
#2,211
of 4,997 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#79,471
of 268,205 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Genes & Development
#20
of 53 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,367,469 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 49th percentile – i.e., 49% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 4,997 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 6.7. This one is in the 24th percentile – i.e., 24% 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 268,205 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 66% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 53 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 60% of its contemporaries.
