Associations of Transillumination with chemical compounds

  • Photography with color film detected 50 fmol of fluorescein covalently coupled to ovalbumin, gave 80-fold greater sensitivity than transillumination in detection of fluorescein-labeled polypeptides, and was about 25-fold more sensitive than protein staining with silver [17].
  • In the present report it is shown that histone bands in urea-acetic acid or Triton-urea-acetic acid-polyacrylamide gels can be stained with the fluorescent dye 1-anilinonaphthalene 8-sulfonate and visualized by transillumination of the gel with an uv-light source [18].
  • The extent of iris transillumination did not correlate with the grade of phenylephrine-induced pigment liberation [19].
  • 1. Specific alpha- and beta-adrenoreceptor agonists, phenylephrine and isoprenaline, were injected intraportally into the intact rat liver under direct microscopic observation by an in vivo transillumination technique [20].
  • Trypsin was electrophoresed in SDS polyacrylamide gels copolymerized with Boc-Gln-Ala-Arg-MCA, the gel was then incubated in assay buffer, and trypsin cleavage of the peptide-MCA substrate generated fluorescent AMC (7-amino-4-methyl-coumarin), which was subsequently detected under UV transillumination [21].

Gene context of Transillumination

  • Although racial variations were found in the incidence of choroidal nevi (p = 0.001) and iris transillumination (p = 0.0012), these variations were believed to reflect normal differences found in patients without vitiligo [22].
  • The genomic DNA was amplified by polymerase chain reaction and the products were separated on 1.5% agarose gel and visualised by ultraviolet transillumination [23].
  • Transillumination and Infrared Light Scanning (I.L.S.) of the breast were evaluated in a high referral breast clinic over a 15-month period [24].
  • CONCLUSION: Modification of the technique facilitated transillumination and placement of the ETT [25].
  • 1. Rat liver sinusoids were observed by a microscopic in vivo transillumination method [26].
