Abstract [en]

This chapter describes procedures for quantifi cation of postembedding labeling at brain synapses using computer-based tools. The postembedding electron microscopic immunogold method allows detection of epitopes with a resolution of about 20–30 nm. However, plasma membranes belonging to different cells and membranes of intracellular organelles can often be located even closer together. Localizing epitopes at such membranes can reliably be performed by using computer programs, such as ImageJ, which offers automated quantifi cation of gold particles. The present chapter provides a practical description of how to use ImageJ and plug- ins to obtain an accurate representation of the subcellular localization of proteins and small molecular compounds.
