The reduction of four tetrazolium cations (TCs), nitroblue tetrazolium (NBT), neotetrazolium (NT), methylthiazolyldiphenyltetrazolium (MTT) and iodonitrophenyltetrazolium (INT), by viable micro-organisms, immobilized on glass cover slips, was examined by light microscopy with a view to determining a systematic basis for applying these reagents as(More)
Transmitter glutamate/aspartate synthesis is known to proceed along different metabolic pathways. In this light, the functional relevance of glutamate dehydrogenase in postnatally maturing glutamatergic/aspartatergic structures was studied by means of quantitative enzyme histochemistry. The basic requirements concerning the kinetics and calibration of the(More)
The reduction of tetrazolium salts to colored formazans is a reaction which has been exploited both in histo- and cytochemistry. Tetrazolium salts forming fluorescent formazans prove suitable for measuring defined cellular dehydrogenase activities in automated processes. This study considers an important aspect of formazan measurement in flow cytometry,(More)
Succinate, malate, and lactate dehydrogenase were demonstrated histochemically and measured histophotometrically in the heart and skeletal muscle (m. extensor digitorum longus and m. soleus) of rats at different ages. To prove the value of histophotometry, the enzymes of the tissues were estimated biochemically. The gel film technique cannot sufficiently(More)

Thin layer chromatography (TLC) was performed to analyze which products are formed when unstable tetrazolinyl radicals are generated during the reduction of tetrazolium salts under physiological conditions of biochemical and histochemical assays. It was found in aqueous media that irrespective the assay conditions, reduction of(More)
As a model alkaline phosphatase and non-specific esterase were investigated with indoxyl substrates and 11 tetrazolium salts of different reducible substances in livers and kidneys of rat. Besides their localizing qualities, the reducibility of the used tetrazolium salts is the most important parameter for their use in histochemistry of hydrolases. The(More)
