Functional ex-vivo Imaging of Arterial Cellular Recruitment and Lipid Extravasation
The main purpose of this sophisticated and highly versatile method is to visualize and quantify structural vessel wall properties, cellular recruitment, and lipid/dextran extravasation under physiological conditions in living arteries. This will be ...
Aorta Atherosclerosis Lesion Analysis in Hyperlipidemic Mice
Authors:  Sarajo Mohanta, Changjun Yin, Christian Weber, Desheng Hu and Andreas J. R. Habenicht, date: 06/05/2016, view: 3907, Q&A: 0
Atherosclerosis is a chronic inflammatory disease of large and medium-sized arteries. Apolipoprotein E-deficient (ApoE-/-) mice are used as experimental models to study human atherosclerosis. ApoE-/- mice are constitutively ...
