1. 2007MNRAS.377..759S
Re:NGC 4387
NGC 4387: this Virgo galaxy shows and old central age (~12.5 Gyr;
Sanchez-Blazquez et al. 2006c; Yamada et al. 2006. It is a boxy galaxy and it
shows a central velocity dispersion drop (Halliday et al. 2001; Emsellem et al.
2004). This decrease in {sigma} in the central parts of galaxies is predicted
for remnants of an equal-mass merger of two spirals (Bendo & Barnes 2000).

Re:NGC 4387
This boxy galaxy (Peletier et al. 1990) shows regular metal line gradients
consistent with the isophotes. The H{beta} map appears relatively flat in the
inner regions while we observe a drop of H{beta} strength towards larger radii.

Re:NGC 4387
This galaxy shows only marginally detectable emission in few spectra,
corresponding to isolated sources, possibly PNe.

Re:VCC 0828
VCC 828 (NGC 4387).The galaxy is visibly boxy beyond 1", but otherwise it does
not show evidence of structure. A nucleus is clearly visible from the individual
frames and the surface brightness profiles.

5. 2004MNRAS.352..721E
Re:NGC 4387
NGC 4387: This rather boxy galaxy (Peletier et al. 1990) has a central
dispersion drop, already noticed by Halliday et al. (2001).

A7 NGC 4387
NGC 4387 is a member of the Virgo cluster and classified as elliptical in
the RC3. This galaxy was one of eight from the 45 ellipticals imaged by
L95 suspected to contain a nuclear star cluster. Such a component was
proposed to explain an upturn in the measured surface brightness towards
the HST resolution limit.
Both major and minor axis observations show a noticeable dip in {sigma}
at the galaxy centre (see Fig. A7). For 0 arcsec <~ r <~ 5 arcsec along
the minor axis, h_4_ is slightly positive. For the major axis, h_3_ is
slightly non-zero for 1.5 arcsec <~ |r| <~ 5 arcsec and positive for
r >~ 7 arcsec. h_4_ is positive for r <~ -5 arcsec. Outside ~4 arcsec this
galaxy was observed by P90 to have predominantly boxy isophotes.
The central decrease in for both axes suggests that a separate, more
rotationally supported component is present at the galaxy centre.

Re:NGC 4387
NGC 4387.-This elliptical galaxy did not have any detectable X-ray
emission.

Re:NGC 4387
NGC 4387. Our colour maps do not confirm the presence of the red patch
suggested by Ebneter, Djorgovski & Davis (1988).
