In thionine stained serial sections, the nucleus rotandus and red nucleus from normal (N = 6) and experimental samples in each of the species specific (N = 6) and music (N = 6) sound stimulated group were identified from their cranial to caudal extent and quantitatively evaluated.
Microorganisms transfer electrons to the anode electrode in three ways: one via exogenous mediators, which are external to the cell, such as potassium ferricyanide, thionine, or neutral red; two, using endogenous mediators that are produced by the bacteria; and third, via direct transfer of electrons from the respiratory enzymes e.
The electron transfer from microbial cells to the electrode is facilitated by mediators such as thionine, methyl viologen, humic acid etc (Lithgow et al.
Thionine has been used extensively as a mediator of electron transport from Proteus vulgaris and from Escherichia coli (Davis and Yarbrough 1962; Ardeleanu et al.
Every 5th section was stained with thionine and studied light microscopically to identify neuronal somata with "typical chromatolysis" [3] or "cell body response" [4] and to compare the experimental (right) side with control (left) side.
In thionine stained serial sections, the nucleus ovoidalis and red nucleus from normal (N = 6) and experimental samples in each of the species specific (N = 6) and music (N=6) sound stimulated group were identified from their cranial to caudal extent and quantitatively evaluated.
The strain grew on Brucella agar supplemented with 5% horse serum in the presence of basic fuchsine, thionine, and growth on safranin O.
