Histochemical identification of T and B areas in paraffin-embedded lymphoid tissues by demonstration of alpha-naphthyl acetate esterase (ANAE) activity.


A strong activity of acid alpha-naphthyl acetate esterase (ANAE) in T lymphocytes and macrophages within mouse lymphoid organs is demonstrable even after paraffin-embedding, if a rapid embedding procedure with acetone as dehydrating agent is used. The lymphoid tissue structure is better preserved in paraffin sections procured after this rapid embedding… (More)
