RE: [Histonet] Sarcoplasmic reticulum.

From:"Lee & Peggy Wenk"

If the muscle is a frozen section:
- Do a NADH-tetrazolium reductase which will show the mitochondria and the
sarcoplasmic reticulum. Also do a SDH which which demonstrate only the
mitochondria. Compare the two sections.
- And throw in a modified Gomori trichrome for giggles and kicks.

            Just been asked, "is it possible to stain the sarcoplasmic
reticulum at the light level." EM it jumps out at you but I'm a bit stumped
for LM. CaATPase, mmmm, any thoughts?
