The ssAVS technique was described, cases in which adrenal segmental lesion(s) were identified by ssAVS were presented, and the usefulness of ssAVS in future adrenal research was discussed.
Phagocytosis Assay for Apoptotic Cells in Drosophila Embryos Saori Nonaka1, Aki Hori1, Yoshinobu Nakanishi1, Takayuki Kuraishi1 1Graduate School of Medical Sciences, Kanazawa University We herein describe a phagocytosis assay using the dispersed embryonic cells of Drosophila. It enables us to easily and precisely quantify in vivo phagocytosis levels, and to identify new molecules required for the phagocytosis of apoptotic cells.
