  • No branches can be seen even in the routine histological stains (thionin, cresyl violet) still used nowadays (B).

    Black Reaction - La reazione nera

  • But although government agencies now admit that neurotoxins - for example isomers of tri-cresyl phosphate - are present in these fumes, they claim their quantities pose no threat to health.

    HEADLINES

  • One slide from each set was stained with cresyl violet for assessing integrity of retinal lamination.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • Retinal sections were stained with cresyl violet for examining general retinal lamination and with photoreceptor cell-specific antibodies (rhodopsin, cone arrestin), which showed the preservation of cone and rod photoreceptors within the MSC treated animals.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • Retinal sections stained with cresyl violet indicate substantial preservation of photoreceptors across the retina in MSC treated eyes at P90, while in control eyes (sham injected (B) and untreated (C)): only a single layer of photoreceptors remained.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • In brief, cryosections (40 µm thickness) spanning the rostral-caudal extent of the injured cortex were selected and stained with cresyl violet by an experimenter given only the animal's identifier code.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • Every other section was mounted on a gelatin-coated glass slide and stained with cresyl violet to visualize Nissl substance.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • Every twelfth section was stained with 1% cresyl violet.

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • O (15-30 sec), stained with 1\% cresyl violet in 1 M sodium acetate (~30 sec), rinsed 2× with DH

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • 33P-labelled sense and antisense riboprobes were hybridized to serial parasagittal sections of additional (n = 4-6) adult male zebra finches followed by phosphorimager autoradiography (Typhoon 9410, GE Healthcare) for a global assessment of brain mRNA distribution, or emulsion autoradiography followed by Nissl (cresyl violet or toluidine blue) counterstaining for regional and cellular analysis.
