Paraformaldehyde is recommended for use in the preparation of formalin fixatives for tissues or cells when the samples are to be used in florescence studies. Paraformaldehyde has been used for fixing of cells and tissue sections during staining procedures.
Benzylamine occurs biologically from the action of the N-substituted formamide deformylase enzyme, which is produced by Arthrobacter pascens bacteria. This hydrolase catalyses the conversion of N-benzylformamide into benzylamine with formate as a by-product. Benzylamine is degraded biologically by the action of the monoamine oxidase B enzyme, resulting in benzaldehyde.
