Factor XIIIA—expressing inflammatory monocytes promote lung squamous cancer through fibrin cross linking

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5959879
PMID: 29777108
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-04355-w

[…] ined using three representative fields at 200 × magnification for each tumor (5 tumors per group). All Ki-67 positive cells per high-powered field were enumerated. Ki-67 expression was analyzed using CellProfiler 2.0 software to quantify the number of positively staining cancer cells per high-powered field (200 × magnification). Tissue microarray samples for lung squamous cell carcinoma cancers (p […]

[…] d on a Leica TCS SP8 confocal laser scanning microscope (Leica Microsystems) maintained by the Center for Microscopy and Image Analysis, University of Zurich. Images were analysed using a custom-made CellProfiler version 2.1.1 pipeline and KNIME version 2.12.2. […]


The senescence associated secretory phenotype is potentiated by feedforward regulatory mechanisms involving Zscan4 and TAK1

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5928226
PMID: 29712904
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-04010-4

[…] foci by following a 4-category counting strategy as formerly reported. Random fields were chosen to show DDR foci and SA-β-gal positivity, while BrdU incorporation and DDR foci were quantified using CellProfiler (http://www.cellprofiler.org) with a minimum of 200 cells counted per sample for above cell-based assays. For clonogenic assays, cells were seeded at 1 × 103 cells/dish in 10 mm dishes fo […]


Concepts in Light Microscopy of Viruses

[…] urpose programming language. Fortunately, there are several open-source programs available, which generate flexible analysis pipelines by combining existing modules in an easy-to-use GUI.For example, CellProfiler (http://cellprofiler.org/) is an image analysis software that allows the simple generation of automated workflows for high-content imaging []. The resulting datasets can be exported as .c […]


MeioSeed: a CellProfiler based program to count fluorescent seeds for crossover frequency analysis in Arabidopsis thaliana

Plant Methods
PMCID: 5905130
PMID: 29692862
DOI: 10.1186/s13007-018-0298-3

[…] t species or for counting any other objects, but the performance of MeioSeed will drop along with increasing differences in shape and size. It might be very worthwhile to consider the combined use of CellProfiler and Ilastik for seed counting purposes in crop species, as we have shown in the present study for rapeseeds and barley grains (Additional files and ). Seed count is considered to be an i […]
