This investigation was designed to clarify the role of the aldehyde component of aldehyde fuchsin in its staining reactions. Several aldehyde fuchsin analogs were prepared by using different aldehydes. The staining quality of these analogs and pararosaniline-HCl was compared with that of aldehyde fuchsin prepared with paraldehyde in the usual way. The major(More)
OBJECTIVE A multitude of female congenital anomalies are uncommon. However, their impact on reproduction can be profound. The aim of this review is to remind the practicing physician of the clinically relevant embryology and summarize the studies that look at the impact of such various anomalies on a woman's fecundity. We review particular surgical(More)
Chiari anomalies in the human right atrium ostensibly are encountered rarely. There is only sporadic mention in the literature of these fenestrated, net-like valves of the inferior vena cava, coronary sinus, or various strands connecting these with other right atrial structures. The effects of such structural anomalies on heart function are unknown. We(More)
Aldehyde fuchsin stains pancreatic B cell granules, hypophyseal basophils, goblet cell mucins, gastric chief cells, hyaline cartilage, and elastica. Neither the chemical structure of aldehyde fuchsin nor its staining mechanism is known. This study was undertaken to clarify the role of the fuchsin component of aldehyde fuchsin in its staining reaction. The(More)
Phase partition fixation permits fixation of tissue in a nonaqueous environment, thus eliminating osmotic effects. It was shown in an earlier investigation that retention of protein in liver blocks can be improved by phase partition fixation. By using radioisotopic labeling techniques, the effects of phase partition fixation on lipid retention during(More)
In phase partition fixation tissue is immersed in an organic solvent at equilibrium with an aqueous phase containing a fixing agent. By using radioisotope labeling techniques the effects of phase partition fixation on protein retention during fixation of tissue with formalin and glutaraldehyde have been determined and compared with those of standard aqueous(More)
Commercial samples of basic fuchsin contain variable proportions of four homologs, pararosaniline, rosaniline, magenta II, and new fuchsin. That different samples of dyes give variable staining is documented in the literature. Three commercial samples of basic fuchsin were investigated using high performance liquid chromatography. Separation of homologs was(More)
The four analogs comprising basic fuchsin have been separated using thin layer chromatography (TLC). Mixtures spotted on reverse phase TLC plates were developed with a solution of 25% methanol, 10% ammonium hydroxide, and 65% distilled water. The Rf values of the analogs were for pararosaniline, 0.54; rosaniline, 0.41; magenta II, 0.31; new fuchsin, 0.19.
It has been proposed in the literature that Schiffs reagent reacts with aldehydes to form one of the following types of compounds: alkylsulfonic acids, N-sulfinic acid derivatives, or Schiff bases. Model compounds whose structures are consistent with those proposed in the literature have been synthesized and subjected to infrared analysis. Also, actual(More)

Preparation of aldehyde fuchsin normally requires ripening for 3 to 5 days. By using a 5-fold excess of paraldehyde a fully potent aldehyde fuchsin can be prepared in 24 hr at room temperature. Aldehyde fuchsin prepared by both normal and accelerated ripening afforded comparable results, including selective staining of unoxidized pancreatic B cells. Dried(More)
