The histochemical demonstration of acid phosphatase activities against phosphoethanolamine (PEA), phosphorylcholine (PC), and D-ephedrine phosphate (DEP) are reported for a variety of rat tissues and are compared to acid beta-glycerophosphatase (beta GPase) activity. Intense acid beta GPase activity was demonstrated in all tissues examined. However, liver, kidney, intestine, spleen and bone marrow cells failed to exhibit any enzyme activity against PEA, PC, or DEP. In addition, significant… CONTINUE READING
