Tissue injury decreases the length of AC3-positive primary cilia. a AC3-positive cilia were shortened close to injured tissues. Scale bar: 5 μm. Top, non-injured tissues; bottom, injured tissues. b The frequency of AC3-positive cilia was not changed between injured and non-injured tissues (n.s. not significant, unpaired Student’s t-test). c Comparison of AC3-postive cilia lengths reveals significant decrease in cilia length proximal to injury sites compared to injured tissues (*** p < 0.001, unpaired Student’s t-test). N = 5, C57BL/6 mice. Non-injured sites were from opposite hemisphere of the injury site of the same animals. Cilia number: non-injured sites: 271; injured sites: 326. d CDFs and density comparison indicate the shortening of AC3-positive cilia length near to injury sites
