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

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

[…] rop images, and adjust image size to 300 dpi. Illustrator (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 […]


Molecular mechanism of central nervous system repair by the Drosophila NG2 homologue kon tiki

PMCID: 5004445
PMID: 27551055
DOI: 10.1083/jcb.201603054
call_split See protocol

[…] (a) Repo+ cells and HistoneYFP+ cells were counted automatically throughout the entire abdominal CNS in 3D, throughout stacks of confocal images, using the DeadEasy Larval Glia ImageJ plugin (; ), except in repoGAL4>UASKonRNAi, where cells were counted manually with the aid of the ImageJ Cell Counter macro. DeadEasy identifies cells based on volume and p […]


An Injury Paradigm to Investigate Central Nervous System Repair in Drosophila

PMCID: 3641668
PMID: 23567253
DOI: 10.3791/50306

[…] ells and apoptotic cells using DeadEasy.(A) Example of using 'DeadEasy Larval glia' to count REPO positive glial cells. Left: VNC ventral halves stained with anti-REPO antibodies; middle: output from DeadEasy Larval glia showing cells identified by the plug-in; right: merge. The numbers on the right are the number of REPO-positive cells counted automatically in an entire stack of optical confocal […]


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

[…] To count automatically the number of all larval glia stained with anti-Repo and acquired as confocal microscopy images, we purposely wrote DeadEasy Larval Glia software in Java as an ImageJ plug-in. Confocal serial sections were obtained with the BioRad Radiance 2000 confocal microscope as images of x,y = 0.5665 µm/pixel and z = 1 µm/pix […]
