Liver and muscle glycogen contents were measured calorimetrically using anthrone reagent [45].
The total soluble sugars were determined by the anthrone method, as described by Dische (1962), and the results were expressed in g per 100 g of rind or pulp.
According to Shields and Burnett [20], using anthrone in sulfuric acid media.
Total soluble sugars content was measured based on the Anthrone method (Irigoyen, J.
The glycogen levels of the liver and skeletal muscles were measured by the anthrone method as demonstrated in previous studies (Carroll etal.
Most of the glycolipids detected by anthrone reagent were also stained with fluorescamine reagent for amines, and stained rather weakly with Dittmer-Lester's reagent for phosphorus.
5 ml) of the nectar solution was analyzed using the anthrone colorimetric technique (Cresswell, 1993; as modified by Green and Horner, 2007).
The sinistrin was analysed using chemical methods, adding anthrone, taking an absorbency reading at 623 nm and subtracting the baseline absorbency.
Anthrone diluted in sulfuric acid was then added to turn the solution green, and the reaction was analyzed with a spectrophotometer at 650 nm.
