A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Skelet Muscle 2018 Aug;8(1):25

BACKGROUND: Skeletal muscle has the capacity to adapt to environmental changes and regenerate upon injury. To study these processes, most experimental methods use quantification of parameters obtained from images of immunostained skeletal muscle. Muscle cross-sectional area, fiber typing, localization of nuclei within the muscle fiber, the number of vessels, and fiber-associated stem cells are used to assess muscle physiology. Manual quantification of these parameters is time consuming and only poorly reproducible. While current state-of-the-art software tools are unable to analyze all these parameters simultaneously, we have developed MuscleJ, a new bioinformatics tool to do so.

METHODS: Running on the popular open source Fiji software platform, MuscleJ simultaneously analyzes parameters from immunofluorescent staining, imaged by different acquisition systems in a completely automated manner.

RESULTS: After segmentation of muscle fibers, up to three other channels can be analyzed simultaneously. Dialog boxes make MuscleJ easy-to-use for biologists. In addition, we have implemented color in situ cartographies of results, allowing the user to directly visualize results on reconstituted muscle sections.

CONCLUSION: We report here that MuscleJ results were comparable to manual observations made by five experts. MuscleJ markedly enhances statistical analysis by allowing reliable comparison of skeletal muscle physiology-pathology results obtained from different laboratories using different acquisition systems. Providing fast robust multi-parameter analyses of skeletal muscle physiology-pathology, MuscleJ is available as a free tool for the skeletal muscle community.
