[…] values. outliers were removed from images using the built-in -fiji option with the settings "rad 1" and "threshold 100". for fibroblast movies, single cell bioluminescence was traced using the spottracker plugin [], which enabled us to accurately track cells that move and oscillate at the same time. we then calculated the signal strength as the mean over a small number of pixels […]

[…] of single particle. we recorded the time-trajectory of a trapped particle over a time interval of 21 seconds (the duration is only limited by the video capture and image analysis software) using spottracker algorithm together with imagej software. our experimental results are shown in . as seen from , the trajectory of a single particle trapped by meth is typically within micrometer scale.

[…] that were uniformly anchored to the tips of the cantilevers were included in the analysis. the displacement of fluorescent microbeads at the top of the cantilevers was then tracked with using the spottracker plug-in in imagej (national institutes of health). microtissues were treated with the thyroid hormone triiodothyronine (t3, 100 nm) at the time of seeding for 6 consecutive days.

[…] the assay was carried out at 30 °c., to analyse the data, individual trajectories were extracted from image sequences by means of imagej (nih, bethesda, md) and imagej plugins: particletracker and spottracker. image sequences were pre-filtered with a log filter (mexicanhat) as described to improve signal-to-noise ratio before tracking trajectories. a step-fitting algorithm implemented […]

[…] images were obtained every 5 s. for measuring the fluorescence intensities at endosomal dots in the time-lapse images, imagej software (national institutes of health, bethesda, md) equipped with the spottracker 2d plug-in was used., how to cite this article: ohtsuki, t. et al. the molecular mechanism of photochemical internalization of cell penetrating peptide-cargo-photosensitizer conjugates.
