Abstract

The assembly of cilia and eukaryotic flagella (interchangeable terms) requires the import of numerous proteins from the cell body into the growing organelle. Proteins move into and inside cilia by diffusion and by motor-based intraflagellar transport (IFT). Many aspects of ciliary protein transport such as the distribution of unloading sites and the frequency of transport can be analyzed using direct in vivo imaging of fluorescently tagged proteins. Here, we will describe how to use total internal reflection fluorescence microcopy (TIRFM) to analyze protein transport in the flagella of the unicellular alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, a widely used model for cilia and cilia-related disease.

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
#169,606
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.
