Quantification of the border cell migration defects. The alterations of border cells movements caused by CalpB and CalpA mutations, by RNA interference, or by the overexpression of talin heads are analyzed as in Figure 2. Colored bars indicate the proportion of stage 10A egg chambers in which border cells migrate 0% (pink), 1-25% (purple), 26-50% (dark blue), 51-75% (light blue), 76-99% (green) and 100% (yellow) of the wild-type distance. Thus, the color scale shows the relative distance of posterior border cell movement. Note that in the w1118 control the majority of border cells travel the 100% distance to reach the oocyte by stage 10A, and the next category (76-99% range) represents only a relatively mild migration defect. The genotypes and the corresponding numbers of the egg chambers examined are displayed at the left and the right of the chart, respectively.
