It has been suggested that in von Kóss'as technic silver cations replace calcium bound to phosphate or carbonate groups and are then reduced to black metallic silver during exposure to light. However, in test tube experiments silver phosphate retains its yellow color for days. These differences between reactions of pure calcium phosphates and calcium(More)
Current chemical concepts were applied to Weigert's, M. Heidenhain's and Verhoeff's iron hemateins, Mayer's acid hemalum stain and the corresponding brazilein compounds. Fe bonds tightly to oxygen in preference to nitrogen and is unlikely to react with lysyl and arginyl groups of proteins. Binding of unoxidized hematoxylin by various substrates has long(More)
Mallory's alcoholic hyalin in hepatocytes was found also in other diseases and is now referred to as Mallory bodies. Data concerning their histochemical, immuno and electron microscopic properties are partly contradictory. In this study, early stages of Mallory bodies reacted strongly with configurational technics for myosins; affinity tended to decrease(More)
Formalin has been recommended as an innocuous fixative for immunohistochemistry. However, several studies demonstrated impairment or blocking of antigenic activity of certain proteins. Formalin fixation was discovered accidentally by F. Blum in 1893 and its deleterious effects on various tissue structures were discussed extensively during the following(More)
Previous studies of picro-dye reactions demonstrated wide variations in the binding of different dyes. Picro-Sirius Red F3BA was recommended because it colors all collagens intensely and is suitable for polarization microscopy. Recent publications on quantitative uses of this stain were surprising. To obtain further information on the chemical mechanisms of(More)
