Abstract

Abstract Embedment in diethylene glycol distearate (DGD) was shown to be highly desirable and versatile for retinal cytochemical studies, including in situ hybridization, immuno- and lectin cytochemistry. This method allows for preservation of fine tissue detail as well as good reaction sensitivity. It appears to be more suitable than most other methods currently used for light microscopic retinal cytochemistry.
