Disease relevance of Diacetatodioxouranium

  • The preservation of the spherical shape of the virus was obtained by glutaraldehyde fixation dehydration in alcholic solutions of uranyl acetate, and critical point drying [1].
  • Possible involvement of myofibroblasts in cellular recovery of uranyl acetate-induced acute renal failure in rats [2].
  • Micrographs of one of the views of the large Escherichia coli subunit negatively stained with uranyl acetate were computer averaged using two techniques: the maximum-likelihood method and the correlation method [3].
  • The study was performed to elucidate the progression and regression of superficial and inner glomerular alterations in uranyl acetate-induced renal failure in rabbits [4].
  • We have determined the ultrastructure of 5-hydroxytryptamine3 (5-HT3) serotonin receptors purified from NG108-15 mouse neuroblastoma x rat glioma cells by electron microscopic examination of receptor particles embedded in uranyl acetate stain and metal replicas of rapidly frozen receptors [5].

High impact information on Diacetatodioxouranium

  • Using A-filaments prepared from rat psoas muscle we have now found it possible to induce clear fraying of these filaments into subfilaments, by exposure of the preparation to very low ionic strength before contrasting with uranyl acetate [7].
  • When ultrathin frozen sections of chicken cardiac muscle were osmicated, dehydrated in ethanol, embedded in ethyl cellulose, and stained with acidic uranyl acetate, filaments of 10-12 nm width were visualized in wide interfibrillar spaces [8].
  • Micrographs of mouse liver gap junctions, isolated with detergents, and negatively stained with uranyl acetate, have been recorded by low-irradiation methods [9].
  • For a 500-1,000-A biological tissue section fixed with OsO4 and stained with uranyl acetate, we obtained resolution (half distance, HD) values of approximately 800 +/- 120 A using Ilford L4 emulsion and 500 +/- 70 A using a Kodak NTE-type emulsion [10].
  • Negative staining with uranyl acetate revealed no differences in gametic and vegetative flagellar surfaces; both had flagellar membranes, flagellar sheaths, and similar numbers and distributions of mastigonemes [11].

Anatomical context of Diacetatodioxouranium

  • Spread chromatin fibers and isolated chromatin fragments prepared from chicken erythrocyte nuclei were stained with dilute aqueous uranyl acetate [21].
  • ImmunoGold (Janssen) labeling using chaperonin antibodies indicated that many chaperonins are associated with insoluble cellular structures and these structures appear to be filamentous in some areas, although they could not be uranyl-acetate-stained [22].
  • We recently reported that transient appearance of interstitial myofibroblasts and infiltrating macrophages might play a role in cellular recovery in uranyl acetate (UA)-induced acute renal failure (ARF) [12].
  • When sections from the cerebral cortex of 5 normal rats and 2 normal monkeys were stained with saturated aqueous uranyl acetate (without block staining) and examined with the electron microscope, all 7 animal brains showed abundant membrane lamellation between apposed neuronal and neuroglial processes [23].
  • Actin microfilaments form a distinct laminar core within the ridge; they are seen as a sparse, disordered meshwork in cytoskeletons prepared by conventional methods using uranyl acetate negative staining [10] [24].
