A new light microscopic staining technique allows the visualization of satellite cells on the surface of myofibers. Either prior to or during fixation, whole frog sartorius muscles are bathed in an acidic buffered solution containing lead nitrate and subsequently exposed to ammonium sulfide. The staining of the satellite cells resulting from this procedure reveals their positions, and the outlines of their cell processes which occasionally branch. Electron microscopy shows that the staining is… CONTINUE READING
