Anti inflammatory cellular targets on neutrophils elucidated using a novel cell migration model and confocal microscopy: a clinical supplementation study

PMCID: 5756363
PMID: 29311762
DOI: 10.1186/s12950-017-0177-0
call_split See protocol

[…] ell system IX-81 inverted fluorescent microscope system with an F-view cooled CDC camera (Soft Imagining Systems) at 37 °C. Image J (Java Software) was used to process the movement data and using the Mtrack J plugin, neutrophil tracks were quantified by measuring the total distance they moved (from starting point to endpoint), as well as the linear distance covered (straight line from start to fin […]


Miro1 mediated mitochondrial positioning shapes intracellular energy gradients required for cell migration

Mol Biol Cell
PMCID: 5531732
PMID: 28615318
DOI: 10.1091/mbc.E16-10-0741

[…] as described. Randomly migrating cells that displaced the nucleus and the cell body and did not change their direction of migration due to interaction with other cells were manually tracked using the MTrack ImageJ macro. The accumulated and Euclidean distances, as well as average cell velocity and directionality, were calculated using the ibidi Chemotaxis and Migration Tool 2.0. […]


Barriers and opportunities to implementation of sustainable e Health programmes in Uganda: A literature review

PMCID: 5458569
PMID: 28582996
DOI: 10.4102/phcfm.v9i1.1277

[…] ability and lack of skilled expertise. Similar challenges coupled with inadequate funding and resistance from health workers were encountered in Uganda during implementation of EMRs, such as OpenMRS, mTrack and DHIS2., […]


Oncolytic Herpes Simplex Virus Inhibits Pediatric Brain Tumor Migration and Invasion

PMCID: 5435599
PMID: 28547002
DOI: 10.1016/j.omto.2017.04.002

[…] r. Cell tracking and analysis was carried out according to Cockle et al. For tracking, the nucleus of each cell was identified and tracked over the 48-hr period at 150-min intervals using ImageJ with MTrack software (Biomedical Imaging Group Rotterdam). […]

PMCID: 5335592
PMID: 28316490
DOI: 10.1140/epjc/s10052-016-4395-z

[…] introducing a new variable defined entirely from hard-scatter observables (RpT).The quantity corrJVF is a variable similar to JVF, but corrected for the NPV dependence. It is defined as9corrJVF=∑mpT,mtrack(PV0)∑lpT,ltrack(PV0)+∑n≥1∑lpT,ltrack(PVn)(k·ntrackPU),where ∑mpT,mtrack(PV0) is the scalar sum of the pT of the tracks that are associated with the jet and originate from the hard-scatter verte […]


The core planar cell polarity gene, Vangl2, directs adult corneal epithelial cell alignment and migration

R Soc Open Sci
PMCID: 5099008
PMID: 27853583
DOI: 10.1098/rsos.160658

[…] he cells both 4 and 24 h later using a Leica DRIMB inverted microscope with temperature-controlled chamber and time-lapse video capture. Only successfully transfected GFP-positive cells were assayed. MTrack analysis software for ImageJ ( was used to track cell migration in the x- and y-coordinates on grooved and control substrates, and for measuring the angles of the long […]
