PMID: 29725108
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-24983-y

[…] particle detection in the movies and linking of particle positions into trajectories we used method 1, i.e., the tracking method described by sbalzarini et al., and implemented as the imagej plugin “particle tracker” by the mosaic group. parameter settings for the plug-in are listed in section j in supplementary information. for each video we extracted trajectories which were subsequently cut […]

[…] movie. to measure cell edge movements and identify the timing of systole and diastole, a threshold movie was created from the gfp channel and a roi at the cell edge was drawn and analysed using the particle tracker function. ratio and cell edge data traces were detrended and normalized in matlab, before calculation of pearson correlation coefficient. for comparison of rfp/gfp ratio […]

[…] images were superimposed on the single-molecule images of cd3ε and cd45, and these were used as the regions of the tcr microclusters., trajectories of individual molecules were determined using the particle tracker plug-in for imagej. each trajectory was composed of a series of spots, and intervals between the adjacent spots were steps. the time interval of adjacent spots was the frame interval […]

[…] was done periodically, over a period of 3 to 24 h, with a canon eos-650 digital slr camera mounted on an olympus bx-41 microscope (see below). images were compiled in imagej v1.45s () using the particle tracker plug-in to quantify changes in distribution of the pigmented areas and therefore identify growing regions., culture chips and agar plates were imaged using an olympus bx-41 equipped […]

[…] coupled to matrix deformations, we used time-lapse, live-cell imaging to visualize the relative motion of egfp-paxillin and fibrin. paxillin plaque velocities were tracked in three dimensions with a particle tracker (the imagej plug-in trackmate), which links the centroids of particles between time points (). because particle tracking can overestimate velocities when the localization error […]
