MOTIVATION Accurate and effective dendritic spine segmentation from the dendrites remains as a challenge for current neuroimaging research community. In this article, we present a new method (2dSpAn) for 2-d segmentation, classification and analysis of structural/plastic changes of hippocampal dendritic spines. A user interactive segmentation method with(More)
Effects of NO-donors (3-morpholinosydnonimine-SIN-1 and sodium nitroprusside NaNP) on the accumulation and degradation of oxidized LDL (ox-LDL) by macrophages were studied. Ox-LDL, but not native-LDL (n-LDL) suppressed the LPS-stimulated biosynthesis of NO by macrophages. SIN-1 at low concentrations < 100 microM was without any effect while SIN-1 at high(More)
The fact that an increased blood insulin level is observed in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) confirms the hypothesis that insulin promotes the development of atherosclerosis. The low high-density lipoprotein (HDL) concentration observed in such patients may contribute to alteration in reverse cholesterol transport and promote the accumulation(More)
