Disease relevance of diiodozinc


High impact information on diiodozinc

  • In zinc-iodide-osmium (ZIO) stained preparations, muscle fibers with small nerve terminals were present at 60 d and were still present in old muscle at 120 d [2].
  • The interrelationships between these organelles are considered in view of the similarity of the ZIO localization to phosphatase-rich sites in the neuronal perikarya and with respect to the possibility that components of the synaptic vesicles are formed in the Golgi region of the cell and migrate via the axonal smooth ER to the synaptic regions [3].
  • A positive response to ZIO occurs in certain Golgi vesicles and saccules, in GERL (Golgi-endoplasmic-reticulum-lysosomes), in multivesicular bodies as well as residual bodies and in small vesicles and cisternae of axonal smooth endoplasmic reticllum (ER) [3].
  • The structure of the neuromuscular junctions (NMJs) and their relation to the myenteric plexus were studied by zinc iodide-osmic acid (ZIO) staining and by scanning electron microscopy in the guinea-pig esophagus [4].
  • The position of the recording sites with respect to the terminal branches was determined following zinc-iodide staining of terminals. me declined with distance from the last myelin segment along individual terminal branches: in a [Ca]o of 0.35 mM, me declined by 80% over a distance of 60 micron along mature terminal branches [5].
