PURPOSE The ratio of notochordal (NC) cells to mature nucleus pulposus (MNP) cells in the nucleus pulposus varies with species, age and health. Studies suggest that loss of NC cells is a key component of intervertebral disc degeneration. However, few studies have examined the phenotypes of these two cell populations. Therefore, this study aimed to isolate(More)
Primary cilia length is an important measure of cell and tissue function. While accurate length measurements can be calculated from cells in 2D culture, measurements in tissue or 3D culture are inherently difficult due to optical distortions. This study uses a novel combination of image processing techniques to rectify optical distortions and accurately(More)
