Abstract

The organization of chromatin and modifications to the tails of histone proteins are thought to be important in regulating the rearrangement of V, D and J gene segments, which encode immunoglobulins and T-cell receptors. A recent study shows that methylated lysine 79 in the core region of histone H3 also plays a role by providing a euchromatic 'mark' that may regulate access of the V(D)J recombinase.

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 01 May 2008.
All research outputs
#5,994,569
of 18,439,562 outputs
Outputs from Genome Biology (Online Edition)
#2,846
of 3,726 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#93,237
of 302,737 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Genome Biology (Online Edition)
#9
of 10 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 18,439,562 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 46th percentile – i.e., 46% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 3,726 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 26.7. This one is in the 15th percentile – i.e., 15% 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 302,737 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 60% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 10 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one.
