Filopodia length distribution is unimodal and best fits a lognormal model. (A) Histogram of all the filopodia lengths (n = 1,682), and independent experiments 1, 2 and 3 with n = 745, n = 573 and n = 364 respectively. (B) Empirical cumulative distribution functions (CDFs) of lengths with the lognormal and other statistical models for all the experiments combined and each independent experiment 1, 2 and 3. (C) Empirical PDFs and CDFs of filopodia lengths for 53 cells.
