Ultrastructure of Trichophyton mentagrophytes stained with neutral red.

The ultrastructure of Trichophyton mentagrophytes cells stained with neutral red was investigated using electron microscopy and X-ray microanalysis. Fixatives containing molybdenum and chromium were used to prevent the outflow of neutral red. Electron-dense particles composed of metals and dye were observed exclusively in the vacuoles, which were increased… CONTINUE READING
