An Attempt to Localize Cyclic Phosphodiesterase at Adrenergic Nerve Endings
Derived from the Gomori lead method for phosphatases, the Shanta et al. technique for cyclic phosphodiesterase presents a good specificity but does not allow an appreciation of enzyme activity levels nor a good localization. It has been tried by the authors on different tissues and particularly on cerebellar cortex.
