Clonal Analysis in Mice Underlines the Importance of Rhombomeric Boundaries in Cell Movement Restriction during Hindbrain Segmentation

Figure 3

Measure of the clone size and position.

Clone radius was measured as the half-AP length of the clone (c/2) relative to the rhombomere AP length (b), (radius = (c/2)/b. Position of the clone was established by measuring from the centre of the clone to its immediately anterior rhombomeric boundary (a). Position of the clone was then referred as a percentage of the length of the rhombomere at the level of the clone centre (b) (a/b x 100).
