Abstract

Imprinting disorders are a group of congenital diseases that can result from multiple mechanisms affecting imprinted gene dosage including cytogenetic aberration and epigenetic anomalies. Quantification of CpG methylation and correct copy-number calling is required for molecular diagnosis. Methylation-sensitive multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification (MS-MLPA) is a multiplex method that accurately measures both parameters in a single assay. This technique relies upon the ligation of MLPA probe oligonucleotides and digestion of the genomic DNA-probe hybrid complexes with the Hha1 methylation-sensitive restriction endonuclease prior to fluorescent PCR amplification with a single primer pair. Since each targeted probe contains stuffer sequence of varying length, each interrogated position is visualized as an amplicon of different size upon capillary electrophoresis.

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 16 May 2019.
All research outputs
#11,498,176
of 15,045,842 outputs
Outputs from Methods in molecular biology
#3,960
of 8,869 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#192,655
of 277,488 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Methods in molecular biology
#6
of 7 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 15,045,842 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 20th percentile – i.e., 20% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 8,869 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.6. This one is in the 48th percentile – i.e., 48% 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 277,488 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 24th percentile – i.e., 24% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 7 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one.
