Post-embedding staining of rat gastric mucous cells with lectins

The mucous cells of the rat stomach were stained with lectins by two post-embedding staining methods for electron microscopy. The mucous granules of surface mucous cells and foveolar mucous cells were stained weakly by Ricinus communis agglutinin-ferritin and wheat germ agglutinin-ferritin. The mucous granules of mucous neck cells were stained by… CONTINUE READING
