When a living tissue is ground in trichloroacetic acid,then a thick slurry is formed.This slurry is then filtered.We will get two fractions- one is the filtrate which is called acid soluble pool and the other is the retentate called acid insoluble pool.Micromolecules and macromolecules are found in acid soluble pool and acid insoluble pool respectively.
