Gene context of Periodic Acid-Schiff Reaction

  • Serial frozen sections of longissimus dorsi muscles from twelve Canadian Yorkshire breed pigs at different live weights (13-86 kg) were stained for glycogen by the periodic acid-Schiff (PAS) reaction and reacted for NAD tetrazolium reductase to determine the mitochondrial content of muscle fibres [24].
  • Histochemical staining procedures, including the periodic acid-Schiff (PAS) reaction, Alcian blue stain, and the colloidal iron stain (Müller's reagent), were investigated for their potential to identify mucin deposits on worn hydrogel contact lenses [25].
  • Periodic acid-Schiff reaction with and without diastase digestion demonstrated the presence of glycogen and other carbohydrates, but histochemical stains for normal collagen, elastin and fibrin showed a weak variable reactivity of the deposit [26].
  • In this study, all the CK isoenzymes demonstrated positive periodic acid-Schiff (PAS) reactions, indicating the presence of carbohydrate [27].
  • The following cytochemical methods were used: acid phosphatase, lysozyme, peroxidase, alpha-naphthyl acetate esterase, alpha-naphthyl butyrate esterase, adenosine triphosphatase, and the periodic acid-Schiff reaction (PAS reaction) [28].
