The paper presents a novel method to detect and count dead and live hepatocytes (liver cells) within clusters. The new method distinguishes single cells from clusters in digital microscopic images based on cell shape rather than size. The new method shows an improvement when compared to an earlier algorithm, especially in images where cells have varying(More)
Concanavalin A (Con A)-binding glycoproteins accelerate the rate of cholesterol crystal formation as a prelude to gallstone formation. Immunoglobulins (IgM, IgA, and IgG), aminopeptidase N (APN), phospholipase C (pcPLC), and alpha 1-acid glycoprotein from this Con A fraction have all been proposed as candidate promoters. We immunopurified each of the six(More)
