PMID: 29712573
DOI: 10.1186/s12915-018-0514-7

[…] under a 60× oil immersion objective lens na 1.4 (nikon) for 10 s. images of venus and mneptune fluorescence were taken using a 488 nm laser and a 633 nm laser. image analysis was performed using the quimp plugin [] in fiji software [] to measure the fluorescence intensity in the cytoplasm and plasma membrane of cells. the ratio increase presented in fig. was calculated […]

DOI: 10.1016/j.cub.2017.12.044

[…] and 100% as the maximum footprint size are presented in a., segmentation and plotting of the intensity of the lifeact fluorescence signal in the 2 μm wide outer rim of the cell was obtained using quimp plugin [] for fiji (v17.04.04)., kymographs analyzing the fluorescent signal over time were prepared using the reslice tool in fiji or using the kymographclear toolbox for fiji [] […]

DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1713535114

[…] dfc 450c camera. the cell area and circularity measurements were performed using imagej. the total cortical actin (4 µm from the cell edge) normalized to cytosolic actin was quantified using the quimp (version 17.06.02) plug-in in imagej. the number and area of focal adhesions were based on paxillin staining and quantified as described ()., for the analyses of cellular protrusions, the four […]

DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-06875-9

[…] cells express an f-actin marker, abd-gfp, but since the blebbed membrane is initially devoid of actin, fluorescent rhodamine dextran was added to the agarose gel to act as a negative stain. we use quimp segmentation software to determine cell membrane coordinates from the fluorescence images (fig. ).figure 1 , the basic framework of the model is depicted in fig.  with the cell membrane (blue) […]

PMCID: 5385941
PMID: 28148648
DOI: 10.1091/mbc.E16-10-0733

[…] 3 s–1 (; ). movies of cells coexpressing rbd-raf-gfp and lifeact-rfp from one plasmid were recorded on a confocal microscope at 1.18 s/frame. the extension of a new pseudopod was determined using quimp3 as described (). this provided the first frame (t0) and starting position at the cell boundary of a new protrusion. a line scan (width 660 nm) was drawn perpendicular to the cell surface […]
