Synopsis

Fixation of fragments of human antral mucosa with Helly's fluid allows gastrin-containing cells to be identified by an immunofluorescence technique. Lead-Haematoxylin staining carried out on the same sections shows selective reactivity of the immunofluorescent cells. These findings support the identification of gastrin cells with G cells, known from previous studies to react with lead-Haematoxylin.
