There is a web site with great photos of muscle stains, which includes
NADH. However, I don't know of any site showing rat brain with
The site is: Neuromuscular Disease Center from the Washington
University School of Medicine, St. Louis, MO.
If you want to see the entire site, go to:
If you want to look at the stains, or find staining procedures, go to:
There is information on how to do a biopsy, how to do
stains, how to read results, etc.
For the stains, Click on Stains.
Click on NADH (or any other muscle stain). You will get
the procedure for that stain. Towards the end of the procedure,
you can click on Results. This will give you photos of the
stain, with normal and diseased muscles.
I just found this site a couple of weeks ago. I'm planning on
adding it to the Histotech's Home Page, under Peggy's Links.
(Be patient. Steven and I are updating the dead links, and
will be adding new sites. So keep watching our site.)
