With paxillin-RFP in an MDCK migrating in a wound healing assay. A FA can be manually identified and a region of interest (ROI) drawn around it. Information such as area and intensity can be taken from the ROI for each time point and plotted in a graph to show how the FA increases in size and intensity over time before decreasing as it disassembles. The absolute size and intensity cannot be determined due to the reasons detailed above, but they give an indication of any relative differences over time, and in combination with the time scale, comparisons between treatments can be made.
