An automated, video-driven system was used to measure approximately 30 parameters of cell motion and accompanying changes in shape. This "Dynamic Morphology System" is based upon the Expertvision Motion Analysis System and is driven by a SUN computer. With the aid of this system, amoebic movement and shape changes were compared for vegetative wild-type Dictyostelium discoideum amoebae and a motility mutant, Mo-1. The measured parameters included speed, angle change, bearing, length, width… CONTINUE READING
