Collagen contraction of primary control and disease FPCL cultures. Digital images of contracting FPCL cultures were captured and analyzed using Image J software to quantify collagen contraction. The mean FPCL surface area (mm2) was plotted over time with each data point representing the mean ± the standard deviation of the mean (SDM) of three independent patient-matched cell lines. Experiments were repeated in quadruplicate.
