RE: [Histonet] ISH control probe

From:"Elizabeth Chlipala"

I think I can help you, but I need to know what your target is.
Typically we normally are going after the mRNA rather than the DNA that
has only one to a few copies and is duplexed.  So you would be more
concerned about the integrity of RNA rather than DNA.  If you are
looking for RNA then we use a probe that hits 18s rRNA that hits all
eucarya.  It's an oligo probe that you can get any oligo company to make
up with a fluor or hapten attached to it.  Its 5'GGGCATCACAGACCTG3' with
Tm = 52C.

I have a question for those folks doing ISH. What type of probe are you
using to determine that the DNA in the tissue is available for
hybridization? Thanks for the help.
