The importance of context in regulation of gene expression is now an accepted principle; yet the mechanism by which the microenvironment communicates with the nucleus and chromatin in healthy tissues is poorly understood. A functional role for nuclear and cytoskeletal architecture is suggested by the phenotypic differences observed between epithelial and mesenchymal cells…

How Amira-Avizo Software is used

Volume representations and manual segmentations of the volume electron microscopy datasets were performed using Amira software.
