Distributions of inter-kinetochore distance (d; top row) in 3D (left) and 2D (right), intra-kinetochore distance (Δ; middle row) in 3D (left) and 1D (right), and intra-kinetochore swivel (ϑ; bottom row) in 3D (left) and within the xy-plane (ϑy-swivel, right) for untreated cells compared with 10 µM taxol. Values given are medians ± standard error, except for ϑ y-swivel where distribution standard deviations are given. All medians are statistically different between treated and untreated (p < 10–4), except for Δ 3D (p = 0.302).
