Abstract

Eukaryotic cilia and flagella are assembled and maintained by intraflagellar transport (IFT), the bidirectional transport of proteins between the ciliary base and tip. IFT is mediated by the multi-subunit IFT complex, which simultaneously binds cargo proteins and the ciliary motors. So far 22 subunits of the IFT complex have been identified, but insights into the biochemical architecture and especially the three-dimensional structure of this machinery are only starting to emerge because of difficulties in obtaining homogeneous material suitable for structural analysis. Here, we describe a protocol for the purification and reconstitution of a complex containing nine Chlamydomonas reinhardtii IFT proteins, commonly known as the IFT-B core complex. In our hands, this protocol routinely yields several milligrams of pure complex suitable for structural analysis by X-ray crystallography and single-particle cryo-electron microscopy.

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
#7,040,799
of 9,238,399 outputs
Outputs from Methods in molecular biology
#3,683
of 7,229 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#169,605
of 238,677 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Methods in molecular biology
#5
of 11 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 9,238,399 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 7,229 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.9. 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 238,677 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 16th percentile – i.e., 16% 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 45th percentile – i.e., 45% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
