Cytochemical Localization of Acid Phosphatase in Trichonympha turkestanica Bernstein (Trichonymphina, Trichonymphidae)


H. W. Dean and E. W. Dempsey1 found prominent deposits of acid phosphatase in the Golgi region of the duodenal epithelium in the rat, mouse, deer mouse, hamster, cat and monkey. They also recorded the presence of well-defined concentrations of acid phosphatase in the Golgi zone of the uterine epithelium of the pregnant cat and sow. These two authors also observed granular deposits of the same enzyme in the Golgi region and in the apical cytoplasm of cells from the liver and kidney of sundry species.
