A confocal laser scanning microscope (CLSM) captures images from a biological specimen in different depths and provides one with a stack of precisely registered fluorescent images. However, image intensities suffer from light loss distortions showing contrast and brightness degradation of images with depth. This effect causes problems in subsequent analysis(More)
Computer-based visualization of large tissue volumes with high resolution based on composing series of high-resolution confocal images is presented. GlueMRC and LinkMRC programs are introduced, implementing composition of overlapping series of optical sections captured by a confocal microscope, registration and subsequent composition of successive confocal(More)
Much like other microorganisms, wild yeasts preferentially form surface-associated communities, such as biofilms and colonies, that are well protected against hostile environments and, when growing as pathogens, against the host immune system. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying the spatiotemporal development and environmental resistance of(More)
A confocal laser scanning microscope (CLSM) enables us to capture images from a biological specimen in different depths and obtain a series of precisely registered fluorescent images. However, images captured from deep layers of the specimen may be darker than images from the topmost layers because of light loss distortions. This effect causes difficulties(More)
Studies of the capillary bed characterized by its length or length density are relevant in many biomedical studies. A reliable assessment of capillary length from two-dimensional (2D), thin histological sections is a rather difficult task as it requires physical cutting of such sections in randomized directions. This is often technically demanding,(More)
In images acquired by confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM), regions corresponding to the same concentration of fluorophores in the specimen should be mapped to the same grayscale levels. However, in practice, due to multiple distortion effects, CLSM images of even homogeneous specimen regions suffer from irregular brightness variations, e.g., darkening(More)

During pregnancy, oxygen diffuses from maternal to fetal blood through villous trees in the placenta. In this paper, we simulate blood flow and oxygen transfer in feto-placental capillaries by converting three-dimensional representations of villous and capillary surfaces, reconstructed from confocal laser scanning microscopy, to finite-element meshes, and(More)
Quantitative measurements of geometric forms or counting of objects in microscopic specimens is an essential tool in studies of microstructure. Confocal stereology represents a contemporary approach to the evaluation of microscopic structures by using a combination of stereological methods and confocal microscopy. 3-D images acquired by confocal microscopy(More)
Chloroplast number per cell is a frequently examined quantitative anatomical parameter, often estimated by counting chloroplast profiles in two-dimensional (2D) sections of mesophyll cells. However, a mesophyll cell is a three-dimensional (3D) structure and this has to be taken into account when quantifying its internal structure. We compared 2D and 3D(More)
In contrast to limb muscles where neonatal myosin (MyHC-neo) is present only shortly after birth, adult masseter muscles contain a substantial portion of MyHC-neo, which is coexpressed with mature MyHC isoforms. Changes in the numerical and area proportion of muscle fibers containing MyHC-neo in masseter muscle with aging could be expected, based on(More)
