The Application of the Freezing-Drying Technique to Retinal Histochemistry
In this article, Anfinsen, Lowry, and Hastings presented a method that permitted histological examination and quantitative
enzymatic study of individual freeze-dried sections of tissue in order to study enzymatic localization in the various layers
of the retina. Published shortly before Anfinsen received his Ph.D. from Harvard in 1943, this is a quantitative, histochemical
study of the retina in which the three researchers adapted an earlier technique for the identification of chemical components
in cells and tissues that was developed by Kaj Linderstrom-Lang and K.R. Morgan.
