Nissl stain

Ni·ssl stain

(nis'ĕl),
1. a method for staining nerve cells with basic fuchsin;
2. a method for staining aggregates of rough endoplasmic reticulum and ribosomes in neuronal cell bodies and dendrites with basic dyes such as cresyl violet (or cresyl echt violet), thionine, toluidin blue O, or methylene blue.

Rats were categorized into two groups: group I (n = 6) for morphometric analysis with Nissl stain and group II (n = 6) for immunohistochemical analysis using peripherin antibody.
In this study, varying sizes of neuronal cell bodies were measured using Nissl stain and correlated with peripherin immunostaining.
