Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Intravital fluorescence microscopy is increasingly used to measure experimental arterial thrombosis in large and small arteries of mice in vivo. This chapter describes protocols for applying this technology to detect and measure thrombi formed by: (1) ultrasound-induced rupture of an atherosclerotic plaque in the carotid artery of adult Apoe ( -/- ) mice; (2) FeCl(3) or ligation in the carotid artery of nonatherosclerotic mice; and (3) FeCl(3) in the mesenteric venules and arterioles of young mice. In addition, we describe a protocol using two-photon laser scanning microscopy for intraluminal scanning of thrombi formed in the carotid artery. These approaches provide important information that cannot be obtained with ex vivo methods and thus are likely to lead to new insights into the complex process of thrombosis.
