Anatomical context of glutaraldehyde

  • 'Freezing' of Ca-regulated conformation of reconstituted thin filament of skeletal muscle by glutaraldehyde [23].
  • We observed undiminished adherence of unfixed erythrocytes to glutaraldehyde-fixed normal and virus-transformed hamster fibroblasts coated with concanavalin A [24].
  • When such "force dissection" is performed on samples both trypsinized and fixed with glutaraldehyde, the hexagonal array of gap junction hemichannels is revealed, with a center-to-center spacing of 9.1 nanometers [25].
  • Circumstantial evidence from studies on the specificity of selection induced with glutaraldehyde-treated cells from mice of the B10 recombinant strains suggested that I region-restricted T cells may control the induction of H2K, D-restricted cytotoxic precursor cells [18].
  • Mild glutaraldehyde treatment of effector cells abrogated their ability to generate chemiluminescence, whereas K562 target cells treated in the same way were almost fully able to induce a chemiluminescence response to NK-enriched lymphocytes [26].
