Morphological quantitation by perfusion staining of the endocrine mouse pancreas

Open Access

Attached document(s)



The endocrine mouse pancreas was visualized by perfusion staining the islets of Langerhans with the zinc-chelating agent dithizone. Morphological quantitation of the projected images showed a strong correlation between islet area, body weight, insulin secretion and pancreatic insulin content. The size distribution i.e. islet area and volume was best fitted to a power-generalized inverse Gaussian distribution.
