This paper deals with the spatio-temporal analysis of two-dimensional deformation and motion of cells from time series of digitized video images. A parametric motion approach based on an affine model has been proposed for the quantitative characterization of cellular movements in different experimental areas of cellular biology including spontaneous cell(More)
This paper presents a new model for the segmentation and analysis of living cells. A multi-agent model has been developed for this application. It is based on a generic agent model, which is composed of different behaviors: perception, interaction and reproduction. The agent is further specialized to accomplish a specific goal. Different goals are defined(More)
BACKGROUND In vitro wound healing assays are experimental models commonly used to analyze cell behavior during the migration process. A new approach is proposed for the quantification of cell motility based on an optical flow method. METHODS We assumed that cell-population dynamics can be defined by an a priori affine-motion model. Identified model(More)
BACKGROUND PKH67 labelling was compared for classical proliferation assessment (using S phase evaluation) to analyse the cell proliferation of 29 AML patients treated or not with various drugs. Among these drugs, the effect of tetrapeptide AcSDKP or AcSDKP-NH2 on AML cells, stimulated or not by cytokines, was also evaluated in order to determine (i) if(More)
We previously identified 1-(2,4-dimethoxyphenyl)-3-(1-methylindolyl) propenone (IPP51), a new chalcone derivative that is capable of inducing prometaphase arrest and subsequent apoptosis of bladder cancer cells. Here, we demonstrate that IPP51 selectively inhibits proliferation of tumor-derived cells versus normal non-tumor cells. IPP51 interfered with(More)
The microtubule cytoskeleton plays important roles in cell polarity, motility and division. Microtubules inherently undergo dynamic instability, stochastically switching between phases of growth and shrinkage. In cells, some microtubule-associated proteins (MAPs) and molecular motors can further modulate microtubule dynamics. We present here the fission(More)
Cell culture techniques have been used extensively in the study of the aging process at the cellular level. The "senescent" articular chondrocyte seems to be a good model to examine the responses to aging in osteoarthritis, one of the most frequent diseases of old age. Thus in vitro chondrocyte "senescence", established by weekly subculture was(More)
The in vitro proliferative capacity of articular chondrocytes derived from young and old rabbits was investigated to examine if the modifications incurred can be related to the in vivo aging. Determinations were made of the cartilage cell density, cell volume, cell number at confluency, plating efficiency, growth curve and DNA content distributions. The old(More)
