Tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase activity in rat osteoblasts and osteocytes

Calcif Tissue Int. 1988 Sep;43(3):167-71. doi: 10.1007/BF02571315.

Abstract

Tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase activity, generally known as a distinctive cytochemical feature of osteoclasts, has been demonstrated in osteoblasts and osteocytes in low-temperature glycol methacrylate-embedded rat bone specimens.
