Table 2 Changes in axial length of the optic cup after BMP4 treatment

From: The level of BMP4 signaling is critical for the regulation of distinct T-box gene expression domains and growth along the dorso-ventral axis of the optic cup

  Treatment Group n. Mean percentage difference ± 1.S.D. P-value
D-V axial length none 10 98.1% ± 3.50 0.11
  BMP4 25 92.33% ± 3.83 <0.0001
  BSA 8 95.26% ± 7.77 0.07
N-T axial length none 10 99.97% ± 2.92 1
  BMP4 25 96.66% ± 4.93 0.001
  BSA 8 97.87% ± 3.50 0.15
P-Di axial length BMP4/BSA 4 93.8% ± 6.9 0.58
  1. 100% indicates no change; D-V, dorso-ventral; N-T, naso-temporal; P-Di, proximo-distal
