RE: [Histonet] bacteria stain in plant tissue

From:"Favara, Cynthia (NIH/NIAID)"

I have no experience with plant tissue so this is just a thought!

Have you tried just a plan gram Stain?

Others would be Brown-Hopps and Gram Twort. I like both of these in tissue.

Good Luck!

Subject: [Histonet] bacteria stain in plant tissue 


Has anyone had any experience staining for bacteria in plant tissues?
In Ruzin's book basic fuchsin is used, but it also stains nuclei, mucin
and lignified tissues.  My bacteria of interest is gram negative.

Thanks for any ideas you can give me!!
