Re: [Histonet] Elastin Stain for GMA/MMA (fwd)

From:"Y. Wang"

Hello Catherine,

When we did our elastin staining of rat and tissue enineered arteries we used 
Hart's mofified method counterstained with tartrazine, as recommended by Barry 
Starcher (we tried an elasting staining kit which didn't work veyr well for=20
us). We only stained arteries alone (no stents) and we are not experts in=20
histology. I'm sure someone else on the histonet would be a better source for a 
protocol. However, we do have the protocol we used if you would like it.

Best regards
Yak-Nam Wang
