Nuclear volume and nuclear shape are altered upon aging of HSCs. a Representative confocal 3D reconstruction of the nucleus (stained with DAPI, blue) of young, aged, and aged+CASIN 5 μM HSCs. The arrowheads indicate the nuclear invagination normally observed in young and aged+CASIN HSCs. Bar = 2 μm. b Nuclear volume measurements by 3D-structured illumination (SIM) analysis (based on DAPI staining). ***p < 0.001; n = 3 biological repeats, 47 cells for young, 44 cells for aged, and 70 cells for aged+CASIN 5 μM in total. c Nuclear shape factor (NSF) measurements by Volocity 3D Image Analysis. The NSF scores the 3D shape of an object: 1 corresponds to a perfect sphere. *p < 0.05, ***p < 0.001; n = 6 biological repeats, 62 cells for young, 64 cells for aged, and 61 cells for aged+CASIN 5 μM in total. d Cartoon scheme summarizing premature aging-like phenotypes of Cdc42 GAP knockout (Cdc42GAP−/−) mice. e Representative confocal 3D reconstruction of the nucleus (stained with DAPI, blue) of Cdc42GAP+/+ and Cdc42GAP−/− HSCs. The arrowheads indicate the nuclear invagination observed in Cdc42GAP+/+ HSCs. Bar = 2 μm. f Nuclear volume measurements by Volocity 3D Image Analysis (based on DAPI staining). ****p < 0.0001; n = 4 biological repeats, 119 cells for Cdc42GAP+/+, and 102 cells for Cdc42GAP−/− mice in total. g Nuclear shape factor (NSF) measurements by Volocity 3D Image Analysis. The NSF scores the 3D shape of an object: 1 corresponds to a perfect sphere. **p < 0.01, n = 4 biological repeats, 118 cells for Cdc42GAP+/+, and 101 cells for Cdc42GAP−/− mice in total. h Representative confocal 3D reconstruction of the nucleus (stained with DAPI, blue) and of LaminA/C (green) of Cdc42GAP+/+ and Cdc42GAP−/− HSCs. Bar = 2 μm. i LaminA/C volume measurements by Volocity 3D Image Analysis (based on LaminA/C staining). **p < 0.01; n = 3 biological repeats, 50 cells for Cdc42GAP+/+, and 50 cells for Cdc42GAP−/− mice in total
