Cell adhesion is mediated by numerous membrane receptors. It is desirable to derive the outcome of a cell-surface encounter from the molecular properties of interacting receptors and ligands. However, conventional parameters such as affinity or kinetic constants are often insufficient to account for receptor efficiency. Avidity is a qualitative concept(More)
Optical aberrations degrade image quality in fluorescence microscopy, including for single-molecule based techniques. These depend on post-processing to localize individual molecules in an image series. Using simulated data, we show the impact of optical aberrations on localization success, accuracy and precision. The peak intensity and the proportion of(More)
The challenge of determining the architecture and geometry of oligomers of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) on the cell surface has been approached using a variety of biochemical and biophysical methods. This review is intended to provide a narrative of how key concepts in the field of EGFR research have evolved over the years, from the origins(More)
The purpose of this study was to describe an alternative lateral neck access to perform lymph nodes sampling and/or neck dissection via extra-thyroideal space (MRND vets) in papillary thyroid carcinoma with lymph nodes involvment. Twenty-four consecutive patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma were included. Lymph nodes sampling and modified radical neck(More)
