[Histonet] BRDU free floating vibratome sections
|From:||"Kimberle M. Jacobs" |
Hi I have searched the archives and found a lot of discussion of BRDU, but
no answer to the question if there is a protocol out there for
formaldehyde-fixed, vibratome-cut, free floating sections. Actually we
could mount them on slides as well, I just don't want to do the whole
paraffin embedding thing.
Also is it really necessary to have thin sections if you are going to use
pepsin and acid, etc. ??
We could probably cut as thin as 20 um, but would prefer to use 40 or 60 um.
We will be doing this in pregnant ferrets (E36, gestation is ~42 days) and
examining the brains at ages P0-P15.
Thanks very much for any help!!
