From: Comparative study of two protocols for quantitative image-analysis of serotonin transporter clustering in lymphocytes, a putative biomarker of therapeutic efficacy in major depression

Fig. 6

Histograms of the counts of SER clusters number and size in isolated lymphocytes and lymphocytes in blood smears from human control subjects and depression patients. Note that after protocol optimization the results obtained in the analysis of SERT clusters and size are quite similar for both protocols, indicating in both cases a lack of significant changes in the number of SERT clusters, and an increase in SERT clusters size in naïve depression patients
