BACKGROUND Rats chronically fed ethanol for 3 weeks presented a marked decreased in total hepatic Mg(2+) content and required approximately 12 days to restore Mg(2+) homeostasis upon ethanol withdrawal. This study was aimed at investigating the mechanisms responsible for the EtOH-induced delay. METHODS Hepatocytes from rats fed ethanol for 3 weeks(More)
The frequency of bladder carcinoma is increasing all over the world. In civilized countries the cause of the increasing frequency is depending on environmental factors of different kinds. The cytologic examination of the urine has proved itself as a screening test for papillomas and carcinomas. With the help of the urine cytology it is possible to detect(More)
Different methods for the automated segmentation of microscopic cell scenes are presented with examples. The techniques discussed include edge detection by thresholding, "blob" detection by split-and-merge algorithm, global thresholding using gray-level histograms, hierarchic thresholding using color information, global thresholding using two-dimensional(More)
Responses to light flashes recorded from several scalp electrodes of a normal subject at rest and during alternate compression of the carotid arteries in the neck are analysed. The diffences found in response characteristics between the subject at rest and during carotid compression may serve as indicators of localised areas of cerebral ischemia. The(More)
Especially bladder tumors of low malignancy (grade I) reveal minor abnormalities and therefore these tumors are often overlooked using cytological methods. Therefore, it appeared useful to examine the applicability of microscopic scanning cytophotometry to discriminate urothelial cells by objective parameters. A special combination of a Leitz MPV 2(More)
We have cloned and sequenced the Schizosaccharomyces pombe ade10 gene encoding 5-phosphoribosyl-4-carboxamide 5-aminoimidazole transformylase inosine monophosphate cyclohydrolase. The sequence has an uninterrupted open reading frame of 1755 nucleotides corresponding to 585 amino acid residues. The deduced amino acid sequence shows a high degree of(More)
By segmentation of cell images we understand the automated decomposition of microscopic cell scenes into nucleus, plasma and background. A segmentation is achieved by using information from the microscope image and prior knowledge about the content of the scene. Different algorithms have been investigated and applied to samples of urothelial cells. A(More)
In Schizosaccharomyces pombe, an intrachromosomal crossover between the mating type (MT) expression locus and one of the silent donor cassettes is lethal due to the loss of the intervening L region. The region contains one essential gene, let1. This gene was cloned and sequenced. The deduced amino acid (aa) sequence of let1 shows extensive homologies with(More)
