[Histonet] Re: HELP PLEASE(John/Gayle/Connie/Cynthia/Patsy/Lee & Peggy/Tony, SOMEONE....)

From:Bruce Abaloz

Hi, my name is Danielle & I need some advice PLEASE -
I have been using alkaline phosphatase histochemistry to detect primordial germ cells in PFA-fixed marsupial embryos. I use 1mg/ml Fast Blue salt and 1mg/ml Naphthol AS phosphate sodium salt in 0.2M Tris buffer, pH 9.4. The staining is good but I have been told that it is not permanent. Ideally, I would like to dehydrate these stained specimens, embed them in paraffin and then section and stain them immunohistochemically for other germ cell markers and several growth factors. Does anyone have a protocol utilising alkaline phosphatase histochemistry that would allow me to do this? Thanks for any advice in advance,
