  I've just dug out some old photocopies. The paper you quote doesn't seem
  to mention AEC, but the next one of the series does.  This is

  He used AEC in conjunction with N-phenyl-p-phenylenediamine in a
  modified NADI reaction for cytochrome oxidase. A postulated formula
  for the product (a polymeric indamine dye) is given in the Discussion.
  This doesn't help with the peroxidase reaction though, because for
  that the chromogen is AEC alone.

  According to the Colour Index, 3-amino-9-ethylcarbazole is used in
  the synthesis of some oxazine dyes and pigments, but it is reacted with
  other organic compounds in circumstances very different from anything
