Fig. 3

Example of analysis of SERT protein clusters in one human lymphocyte isolated from whole blood samples (a-c), and one lymphocyte in blood smears from human control subjects (d-f). Figs a and c show the microscope image of SERT immunostaining, while Figs. b and e represent the binary image as obtained in Image J, and Figs. c and f show the actual counts of the number and size of cluster as performed by the image analysis system. Calibration Bar: 10 μm
