CAPABILITIES OF CONFOCAL SCANNING LASER MICROSCOPY IN ASSESSMENT OF APOPTOSIS PROCESSES IN OVA
Kharkiv National Medical University, Kharkiv, Ukraine
The state of normal and apoptotic ova of mice was investigated using scanning confocal laser microscopy. The use of Carl Zeiss LSM 510 Meta microscope and the suggested kit of labels allow early revealing the difference in the state of normally functioning and in the state of the ova with experimental or spontaneous apoptosis.
