Re: [Histonet] Myosin Heavy Chain (slow) Antibodies

From:"Dana Settembre"

Hello Rhonda,
I use NovoCastra's Myosin Heavy Chain (slow) on FFPE human tissue.
The spec sheet indicates that this antibody reacts with mouse among
NovoCastra is distributed in by Vision BioSystems in
Norwell, MA  800-753-7264
The cat. # is: NCL-MHCs

I use normal muscle as positive control.
I pretreat with Dako's Target Retrieval Sol'n (TRS) in a steamer for 40
(but I have pretreated other ways and they work too)
I use it at a 1:40 dilution.  It looks good (on human tissue)

Good Luck
