PMCID: 5941315
PMID: 29654109
DOI: 10.1042/BCJ20180035

[…] reagent (2 µg/ml) to identify the cell nuclei. ten random fields of both β-iii-tubulin and hoechst images were captured under 200× magnification, and the images were processed in imagej using the neuritetracer plugin []. the number of nuclei and neurite pixel density were quantified from the images., the procedure follows as described by murphy et al. [] with modifications. the bait protein […]

PMCID: 5835045
PMID: 29535595
DOI: 10.3389/fnins.2018.00094

[…] cells was calculated. the density was calculated as number of live cells per imaged area., the neurite length at 5 div was quantified using the imagej (schindelin et al., ) neurite tracing plugin neuritetracer (pool et al., ). the plugin was used to calculate the overall neurite length and number of cells for each fluorescence image previously used to calculate viability. the threshold […]

[…] tau (1:500, mn1000, thermofisher scientific), tuj1 (1:250, sc-51670, santa cruz), and map2 (1:1,000; ab5622, millipore). cells were visualized under an olympus ix51 inverted fluorescent microscope., neuritetracer, a neurite tracing plugin for the freely available image-processing program imagej was used to analyze fluorescence microscopy images of neurites and nuclei of cultured primary neurons. […]

DOI: 10.1097/WNR.0000000000000854

[…] nuclei with hoechst33258 (sigma; sigma-aldrich, saint louis, usa), fluorescence images were acquired., to measure the tuj1+ neurites bridging the wound edges, the growing neurites were traced by neuritetracer, a multiplatform free image-processing plugin software for imagej (nih, usa), as described previously . after preprocessing and applying a suitable threshold, tuj1+ fibers […]

DOI: 10.1177/1744806916674472

[…] covering the entire culture area of the glass bottom dish were acquired using a motorized stage and 20× objective of live drg neuronal cultures. for image processing and neurite length measurements, neuritetracer plugin was used in image j (version 1.48, national institutes of health, bethesda, md). images were converted to binary, and threshold levels were set based on gfp signal intensity […]
