Abstract

Cilia and flagella are microtubule-based organelles that play important roles in human health by contributing to cellular motility as well as sensing and responding to environmental cues. Defects in cilia formation and function cause a broad class of human genetic diseases called ciliopathies. To carry out their specialized functions, cilia contain a unique complement of proteins that must be imported into the ciliary compartment. In this chapter, we describe methods to measure the permeability barrier of the ciliary gate by microinjection of fluorescent proteins and dextrans of different sizes into ciliated cells. We also describe a fluorescence recovery after photobleaching (FRAP) assay to measure the entry of ciliary proteins into the ciliary compartment. These assays can be used to determine the molecular mechanisms that regulate the formation and function of cilia in mammalian cells.

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 August 2016.
All research outputs
#6,245,150
of 8,223,523 outputs
Outputs from Methods in molecular biology
#3,041
of 5,851 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#166,874
of 233,175 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Methods in molecular biology
#6
of 11 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 8,223,523 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 13th percentile – i.e., 13% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 5,851 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.0. This one is in the 30th percentile – i.e., 30% 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 233,175 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 15th percentile – i.e., 15% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 11 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 36th percentile – i.e., 36% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
