Radial position of integrin genes during migration of MLP29 cells. Three-dimensional FISH analysis was performed with BAC clones for the Itgb1 or Itgb3 loci and the position of fluorescent signals was determined using computational programs for image analysis. Left panels, 3D reconstruction of MLP29 cell nuclei subjected to FISH analysis with a probe for the Itgb1 and Itgb3 genes. Right panel, absolute radial position of these genes in control and treated cells. Scale bar = 3 μm.
