Layer specific morphological and molecular differences in neocortical astrocytes and their dependence on neuronal layers

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5915416
PMID: 29691400
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-03940-3
call_split See protocol

[…] ith a laser confocal microscope (Leica TCS-SP5) equipped with an oil-immersion objective lens (×40). Confocal images were processed with Photoshop CS4 software (Adobe), the Fiji package of ImageJ, or FluoRender (University of Utah). For quantification of 3D-cell orientation, individual astrocytes were extracted with the 3D Object Counter plugin of Fiji based on the red (tdTomato) channel of confoc […]


Development of image analysis software for quantification of viable cells in microchips

PLoS One
PMCID: 5832319
PMID: 29494694
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0193605

[…] ds of particular cases that were subsequently extended for other purposes, such as ImageJ [], BioImageXD [], Icy [], Fiji [], Vaa3D [], CellProfiler [], 3D Slicer [], Image Slicer [], Reconstruct [], FluoRender [], ImageSurfer [], OsiriX [], and IMOD [] among others [].There are also several analytical tools already on the market. However, many of them, despite being useful for the processing of f […]


Targeted deletion of the zebrafish actin bundling protein L plastin (lcp1)

PLoS One
PMCID: 5749806
PMID: 29293625
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0190353

[…] ight 2-dpf embryos were collected at random, euthanized, and then bisected for microscopy and genotyping as described above. Confocal stacks were obtained on a Leica SP5 microscope and processed with FluoRender software []. […]


Internal amino acid state modulates yeast taste neurons to support protein homeostasis in Drosophila

PMCID: 5812714
PMID: 29393045
DOI: 10.7554/eLife.31625.025

[…] e mounting procedure of the fly head, the labellum opens, exposing the inner surface of the labellum and the taste pegs.3D reconstructions of the nervous system and the periphery were generated using FluoRender (; ). […]


Dynamic changes in the cell membrane on three dimensional low coherent quantitative phase microscopy (3D LC QPM) after treatment with the near infrared photoimmunotherapy

PMCID: 5732807
PMID: 29262641
DOI: 10.18632/oncotarget.22223

[…] All LC-QPM Images were visualized using 3D-rendering software (FluoRender, University of Utah) and analyzed using Image J software. We manually traced the outline of each cell in all sliced sections and measured the cell volume using Image J which was compared to […]

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5662571
PMID: 29084951
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-017-01120-3

[…] bs was performed as previously described. For 3D reconstruction, images captured on a LSM710 confocal microscope (Zeiss) were analysed using the programs Amira® (FEI visualization Sciences Group) and Fluorender® (University of Utah). […]
