Ruthenium red staining of the hamster adrenal medulla

  title={Ruthenium red staining of the hamster adrenal medulla},
  author={Dr. I. Benedeczky and Angela M. Davies Smith},
SummaryThe ruthenium red “staining” of the surface coats was studied in the adrenal medullary cells of golden hamster. Both immersion and perfusion fixation was used with the ruthenium red containing fixative, however, only the perfusion fixation gave positive results. A rather thick electron dense ruthenium red positive layer was found on the plasma membrane of the endothelial cells, around the capillaries in the basal lamina, in the basement membrane of the chromaffin cells as well as on the… CONTINUE READING
