Re: [Histonet] RE: Ihc bone staining

From:louise renton

depends on what you are looking for, perhaps the expression in bone is
very low and thus is not as apparent as in other cells. Certain of the
bone morphogens eg BMP3 are also expressed in Purkinje cells, as I am
sure are many other antibodies.  Perhaps a little more detail  as to
what yoyu are specifically looking at/for would be helpful

best regards
