Enzyme Histochemistry

  • E. Marani


In the following pages, various important aspects of enzyme histochemistry will be discussed. Enzymes are proteins, and a basic understanding of enzyme histochemistry will require first a brief review of proteins including their biochemical characteristics. Special attention will be directed toward the biochemistry of enzymatic catalysis. After this introductory material, some aspects of enzyme histochemistry will be more specifically reviewed in the context of the introductory presentation of enzyme biochemistry. It should become clear that an accurate interpretation of histochemical results is possible only with the help of detailed knowledge of the biochemical properties of enzymes.
