Ultracytochemical reactions for the demonstration of acid phosphatase, glucose-6-phosphatase and thiamine pyrophosphatase, as well as zinc iodide-osmium tetroxide impregnation, revealed the existence of GERL (Golgi apparatus-Endoplasmic Reticulum-Lysosomes) in pinealocytes of the Mongolian gerbil (Meriones unguiculatus). The spatial arrangement of this...

This study has demonstrated that cells stained using the zinc iodide-osmic acid (ZIO) method have the same fine structural features as those of fibroblasts. They have a well developed Golgi apparatus, granular endoplasmic reticulum and many mitochondria. They have no...

The sequence of myocardial changes in the mouse induced by doxorubicin (Dx) treatment (10 mg/kg i.v.) has been investigated by electron microscopy with the help of the zinc iodide-osmium tetroxide (ZIO) technique. Accumulation of ZIO-reactive material, possibly oxidized glutathione and...

Simple and efficient syntheses, catalysed by a mixed Lewis acid system (ZrCl(4)/ZnI(2)), of enantiomerically pure 2- and 2,3-disubstituted furan derivatives--including important synthons such as 3-iodofuran and 3-(hydroxymethyl)furan derivatives--from commercially available 3,4,6-tri-O-acetyl-D-glucal are described. The transformation is achieved through a synergistic...

Cytochemical relationship between Golgi complex and dense-cored granules (DCGs) of small granule-containing (SGC) cells in rat superior cervical ganglia was examined in electron microscopy by zinc-iodide-osmium tetroxide (ZIO) method and by enzyme cytochemistry for thiamine pyrophosphatase (TPPase) and acid phosphatase...
Colloidal quantum dots (CQDs) are semiconducting crystals of only a few nanometers (ca. 2–12 nm) coated with ligand/surfactant molecules to help prevent agglomeration.
