Abstract

Lead tetraacetate-thiocarbohydrazide-silver proteinate reaction sequence for light microscopy of polysaccharides was evaluated on Carnoy's fixed rat liver sections. The results of this evaluation suggest that, on the light microscopic level, the lead tetraacetate-thiocarbohydrazide-silver proteinate method may serve as a practical and histochemically specific alternative to the lead tetraacetate-Schiff reaction for the localization of tissue carbohydrates.
