Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Reaction of heparin alcian blue (HAB) suitable for histochemical demonstration of basic proteins can be inhibited by the van Slyke desamination. This method may also be used for quantitative cytochemical investigations. Absorptive binding disturbing the cytophotometric measurement was not noticed. In tumor cells treated by vincristine the content of basic proteins increases. This phenomenon can be proved by reaction HAB. Using the same specimen Feulgen's reaction may also be carried out.
