AgNOR parameters
nornbc_m Mean value of the corrected number of the AgNORs per cell nucleus (the AgNORs lying very close together in the cell nucleus are recorded as a conglomerate and counted accordingly) 242
nor_k1 mean number (percentage) of nuclei contained in 1 AgNOR 244
nor_k2 mean number (percentage) of nuclei contained in 2 AgNORs 244
nor_k4 mean number (percentage) of nuclei contained in 4 AgNORs 244
nor_k5 mean number (percentage) of nuclei contained in 5 AgNORs 244
nor_k6 mean number (percentage) of nuclei contained in 6 AgNORs 244
nor_k7 mean number (percentage) of nuclei contained in 7 AgNORs 244
nor_k8 mean number (percentage) of nuclei contained in 8 AgNORs 244
snar_r_v Standard deviations of the surface of the single AgNOR in relation to the total surface of the AgNORs per cell nucleus in μm2 per mille 244
center_v Standard deviation of the position of the AgNORs located in the centre of the cell nucleus 244
cent_r_v Standard deviation of proportion of AgNORs in a central position 244
bord_r_v Standard deviation of the proportion of the AgNORs located in the defined, peripheral zone in the cell nucleus 244
locat_v Position of the NORs 244
mnrat2_m Mean ratio between largest AgNOR and total AgNOR area size per cell nucleus in per mille 244
