[…] a lethality phase at pupariation, indicating this is a critical time for myd88 function. using anti–death caspase 1 (dcp1), we counted all dying cells throughout the vnc of white pupae using adapted deadeasy caspase software (). in myd88kra56 homozygotes, apoptosis levels did not differ from controls, but they increased in myd88kra56/dfbsc279 trans-heterozygotes (). we generated a myd88-null […]

[…] 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 […]

[…] might have on neuropile repair, we examined cell death levels. apoptotic cells were visualized with anti-cleaved-caspase3 antibodies, and counted in vivo automatically using purposely adapted deadeasy caspase software . injury increased the extent of apoptosis over non-injured controls (). expression of notchicd in glia did not rescue baseline apoptosis, but it rescued injury-induced […]
