I pooled the outer two, and I analyzed them for carbonic anhydrase. I counted the number of parietal cells in the middle section after I had fixed and stained it. As a control, I counted the parietal cells in successive sections, finding that the number in one section was not very different from the number in surrounding sections. When I plotted the carbonic anhydrase activity of the two slices against the number of parietal cells in the intermediate section, I found a suspiciously high correlation (Fig.
