  • This number is justified because the thickness of cortical GFP-myosin-II fluorescence is approximately 0.35 μm and is consistent with published electron micrographs of D. discoideum cell cortices [ 35 ] . It should be noted that fluorescence that is defined as cytoplasm also includes fluorescence from the overlying and underlying cortices.

  • Bmp4 is expressed in multiple tissues during embryonic development, including the heart, lung, kidney, brain, and eye [ 19 24 ] . In the eye, Bmp4 expression is first identified in the distal optic vesicle and overlying surface ectoderm at the 8-12 somite stage and later in the dorsal portion of the developing optic cup [ 31 ] . Lens induction is absent in homozygous Bmp4 mutants and can be rescued by exogenous BMP4 protein [ 31 ] .

  • Other clinical applications of laser Doppler imaging to the measurement of cutaneous blood flow include the effects of postural changes in blood flow in venous leg ulcers [ 20], the assessment of digital perfusion following arterial repair [ 21], skin perfusion overlying benign and malignant breast disease [ 36] and the effect of prostaglandins on ischaemic ulcers [ 37].

  • We first demonstrated that there was an inherent geometric pattern to the background reflectance in normal fundus images [ 26 ] . We then developed a semi-automated interactive method based on these patterns to level the background reflectance of a drusen-containing image independent of the reflectivity of the overlying drusen (preliminary results presented in abstract form [ 27 ] ). This allows the use of a global threshold to segment the drusen accurately.

  • Mutations in the human KIT gene have been identified as a cause of Piebaldism, a rare autosomal dominant disorder of melanogenesis characterized by patchy absence of pigmentation of the skin and overlying hair.
