Analysis of pH3 and TUNEL in the dorsal and ventral retina after BMP4 treatment. (A, B) Graphs show the number of mitotic cells per section per eye in the dorsal (A) and ventral (B) regions of BMP4-treated optic cups compared with contralateral control optic cups (n = 44 sections from 4 embryos; p = 0.007 in dorsal, p = 0.018 in ventral by ANOVA). (C) Graph shows the programmed cell death index (per section per eye) in the dorsal neural retina of BMP4-treated and contralateral control eyes (n = 26 sections in 5 embryos; p = 0.044 by ANCOVA). Data was Ln transformed for normalisation.
