Re: sirius red for collagen

From:Todd Miller <>

If you're interested, I have a manuscript in press in the American Journal 
of Physiology- regulatory using the Picrosirius stain in skeletal muscle.  
The manuscript includes some nice polarized light pictures.  I'm not sure 
when it's going to be published but its entitled something like "Hindlimb 
Unloading Alters Collagen Phenotype in Rat Skeletal Muscle".
