Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase cytochemistry using a copper ferrocyanide method and its application to rapidly frozen cells

We describe an improved copper ferrocyanide-based method for cytochemical detection of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD), which was used to localize the enzyme within the ultrastructure of rat hepatocytes and adrenocortical cells. With this method, glutaraldehyde fixation and the addition of exogenous electron carriers (for example, phenazine… CONTINUE READING
