Gene context of Osmium zinc iodide

  • The Golgi apparatus was stained in situ by a zinc-iodide-osmium method [16].
  • A cytochemical study of the Golgi apparatus in the developing oocyte of the golden hamster was carried out using the TPPase, AcPase and zinc iodide-osmium tetroxide (ZnOs) techniques [17].
  • Therefore, quantitative morphometry of nerve terminals stained with zinc iodide-osmium was carried out in soleus and extensor digitorum longus (EDL) muscles of CBF-1 mice at various ages from 5 to 32 months [18].
  • By 10 days after botulinum toxin injection, the mean number of sprouts and the mean total length of sprouts, respectively, in zinc iodide-osmium-stained preparations were 2.2 and 212 microm in untreated and control treated muscles but 1.0 and 51 microm in anti-NCAM treated muscles [19].
  • This view is reinforced by the findings of the author's group that the ICC characteristically possess vimentin filaments and are stained with the zinc iodide-osmium tetroxide method which provides a staining affinity similar to methylene blue, the dye used in the original work by Cajal, (1911) [20].
