AW: [Histonet] Some questions about mucins
The basic alcianblue binds to anionic charged sides of sulfated and
carboxylated carbohydrates (acid mucins). This works at pH 2. At lower pH
only sulfated carbohydrates are stained, because the anionic charge of the
others is repressed.

Betreff: [Histonet] Some questions about mucins
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
