Drift-Diffusion Analysis of Neutrophil Migration during Inflammation Resolution in a Zebrafish Model
Nonphotoconverted neutrophils actively migrate into the wound region. (a) Variation over time of mean cell distance from the wound for the nonphotoconverted (green) neutrophils, observed in each subject 1–6 (black line). Overlaid on each graph is the prediction of mean distance obtained from the linear model used to characterise the initial drift (red line). The time is measured from the start of observations which commenced 4 hours after injury. The cell count in subject 6 (bottom right) was low and sometimes zero near the end of the dataset, which explains the missing sections. (b) Data and model combined over all subjects.
