RE: human-human ihc

From:Ralph Marcucio

I think putting human serum on the sections to "block" would INCREASE the
background considerably.  The second antibody (anti-human) would bind the
human Ig's added to the sections.

If Steve puts 40% human serum in his secondary reagent which, if I am
correctly should be a anti-human IgG - the 40% human serum should bind to
all of
the anti-human IgG in the secondary reagent leaving no binding for the
antibody.  Steve can put the 40% human serum in his protein blocking reagent
and in
his primary antibody - but I would leave it out of the secondary.  Am I
reading it
