Quantification of Membrane Damage/Cell Death Using Evan’s Blue Staining Technique
Membrane damage is a hallmark of both biotic and abiotic stress responses. The membrane determines the ability of a cell to sustain altered environmental conditions and hence can be used as a biomarker to assess stress-induced cell damage or death. ...
