Human lymphocyte migration in vitro: characterization and quantitation of locomotory parameters.

Abstract

Using a time-lapse cinephotomicrographic technique, the locomotory paths taken by lymphocytes have been shown to satisfy the requirements for a continuous-time Markov chain analysis consisting of four directional states defined by the four quadrants of a Cartesian plane and state 0 in which the cells are stationary. The important parameters characterizing… (More)
