  • F1-a  Percentage of movement is the no. of transfected cells permitting protein movement out of the total no. of transfected cells analyzed. Reported as an average between experiments recorded 1 d post-bombardment.

  • F1-b  No. cells moved is a average of the no. of cells trafficked to beyond the transfected cell 1 d post-bombardment (sd).
