Three tier regulation of cell number plasticity by neurotrophins and Tolls in Drosophila

PMCID: 5412559
PMID: 28373203
DOI: 10.1083/jcb.201607098

[…] or (Adobe) was used to compile figure plates. (b) For quantitative data (e.g., number of Dcp1+, Eve+, or YFP+ cells), we used the ImageJ plugins DeadEasy Larval Glia (which counts nuclear stains) and DeadEasy Caspase for Larvae (for apoptotic cells) as previously described and validated (, ; ). DeadEasy analyzes the entire stacks of images in 3D, identifies cells based on pixel intensity and 3D vo […]


An Injury Paradigm to Investigate Central Nervous System Repair in Drosophila

PMCID: 3641668
PMID: 23567253
DOI: 10.3791/50306

[…] i-REPO antibodies. Then install the plug-in in ImageJ, open a stack of confocal images and run plug-in. It counts glial cells automatically in about 30 seconds.Automatic counting of apoptotic cells. "DeadEasy Caspase larvae" plug-in ( 18: This was developed to count the number of cells labeled with anti-cleaved-Caspase3, and a new version was a […]


The Glial Regenerative Response to Central Nervous System Injury Is Enabled by Pros Notch and Pros NFκB Feedback

PLoS Biol
PMCID: 3166069
PMID: 21912512
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pbio.1001133

[…] al Glia will be published elsewhere (Forero, Kato, and Hidalgo, in preparation).To count the number of dying cells (labeled with active Caspase3-positive) throughout the VNC, we adapted the programme DeadEasy Caspase to work on larvae. Given the strong variation in background intensity in larval samples, the outlier thresholding method originally used for embryos did not provide good results unde […]
