# Scheme theoretic closure of a locallly closed subscheme

In the book "The Geometry of Schemes" of Eisenbud and Harris, page 26, it is said that the scheme theoretic closure of a closed subscheme Z of an open subscheme U is the closed subscheme of X defined by the sheaf of ideals consisting of regular functions whose restrictions to U vanish on Z. I cannot verify this assertion when the open immersion of U in X is not quasi-compact (I mean I cannot prove that this sheaf of ideals is quasi-coherent). Am I missing something here ?

Have you compared with the counterexamples in the Stacks project concerning schematic closure? math.columbia.edu/algebraic_geometry/stacks-git/morphisms.pdf –  Martin Brandenburg Oct 24 '10 at 22:30
Thanks for the tip & link. Will do it. –  brunoh Oct 24 '10 at 23:03
