We utilized a strain of mice, derived from a radiation mutagenesis experiment and carrying an activity-attenuated allele of the X-linked enzyme glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD), to analyze the development of the cell lineage leading to cerebellar Purkinje neurons. Due to random X inactivation during early embryonic development, X- linked genes can(More)
The aim of this study was to identify the G6PDH-active sinusoidal cells in the rat liver described by Rieder et al. (1978). Because of their number and distribution in the liver parenchyma, endothelial cells and pit cells could be excluded. Fat-storing cells were specifically marked by vital staining with vitamin A and identified by fluorescence microscopy.(More)
Staining procedures for glucose-6-phosphatase and 3-hydroxybutyrate dehydrogenase activity and for glycogen were used to investigate adaptive changes in the regionality of hepatic gluconeogenesis and ketogenesis in fasting male and female rats. A reciprocal distribution of gluconeogenic and ketogenic capacities was found in both sexes, but male and female(More)

In conjunction with the investigation of intercellular compartmentation of liver carbohydrate metabolism, a new procedure for isolation of tissue samples from freeze-dried cryosections was developed. It was designed to permit assessment of functional differences between sinusoids of portal and septal origin, and to extend investigation of liver cell(More)
To investigate the parenchymal units in the liver of the rat three-dimensionally, 15 micrometer cryosections were used for the demonstration of glucose-6-phosphatase (G6Pase) activity to visualize the borders of the individual units. Together with the supplying and draining vessels, they were traced through a sequence of 146 sections and reconstructed. A(More)
The morphological homogeneity of the liver parenchyma has represented a major obstacle in finding an acceptable definition of the structural/functional units of the liver. Concepts such as the "lobule," the "portal unit" and the "acinus" remain debatable. This study investigates the modular microarchitecture on the basis of the lobular concept. Using(More)
Methodological studies on the histochemical technique for the demonstration of G6Pase activity showed that the occurrence of common artifacts: morphological destruction, extracellular precipitation of reaction product and nuclear staining are dependent on the concentration of lead nitrate, buffer and substrate. By studying the effects of systematic(More)
