The Potential Use of Glutaraldehyde-Fixed Liver Cells in the Study of Hepatic Reticuloendothelial and Parenchymal Cell Metabolism
Glutaraldehyde has been widely used to fix tissue for electron microscopic, histochemical, and biochemical studies [1–3]. This dialdehyde not only has the capacity to stabilize subcellular structures, but it does so without completely inhibiting certain enzymes. These are properties which make glutaraldehyde a desirable tool in tissue structure-function studies.
