Reagent

reagent --> periodic acid Schiff reaction

(Science: technique) A histochemical technique based on periodic acid oxidation of a substance containing the 1,2-glycol grouping.

It is used for staining carbohydrates as the resulting dialdehyde reacts with Schiff reagent to form a coloured product.

The adjacent hydroxyl groups are oxidized to form aldehydes by periodic acid (HIO4) and these aldehyde groups react with Schiff's reagent (basic fuchsin decolourised by sulphurous acid) to give a purple colour.

Acronym: PAS

Simulated intracellular fluid

It is difficult to simulate intracellular fluid by using chemical reagent. Another way is using NP40 or OG to lysate the cell and collect the cell lysate. Then spin down the proteins and get the intracellular fluid. Will ___________________________________________________________________________________________ ...
