Comments P.3525 right column bottom paragraph: "Indeed, the cross-sectional nuclear areas measured in the small cell populations, and the large cell populations generated by CLN3 manipulation were significantly different from the nuclear areas measured in wild-type cells in the same medium (Figure 2A, Table 2, Student's t tests, p < 10^−15). The differences in the nuclear areas appeared to be roughly proportional to the differences in cell volume measured with a Coulter particle analyzer (Figure 2B). To estimate nuclear volumes, [investigators] assumed that the nuclei were spherical, which is true or nearly true (Winey et al., 1997). The N/C ratio determined from population averages was quite constant, such that nuclear volume was 6–8% of cell volume, even though these alterations in CLN3 activity generated twofold differences in average cell volume (Table 2)."
