Protein Disulfide Bonds and Fixation of Tissues in Histology?
a weird question for all those histologists....
during fixation of tissues and cells what exactly happens to intracellular cysteine disulfide bonds with formaldehydes and paraformaldehydes?
Isnt it known that PFAs cross-link proteins? What about formaldehyde?
Do these fixatives stabilize bonds?
