Dear All
I have been looking through some books and papers prior to giving a
tutorial to my colleagues about carbohydrates and mucins. 2 questions
I seem to recall in the dim and distant past this term was used for
Schiff's reagent. Is this term still applicable?
Alcian Blue mechanism
I am aware that the binding of alcian blue and acid mucins is permanent
but does anyone know the exact mechanism?
Thanks in advance
