RE: [Histonet] Vital stain for mouse v. human cells

From:"Liz Chlipala"


I have not heard of a vital stain, but I know that this can be determined
via in-situ hybridization.  You can stain for mouse satellite DNA repeat
sequences, you need to get an oligo probe that is specific to the mouse
genome and will not detect human.  We have one that we have used for mouse
verses porcine tissue.  We get our probes from Genedetect.  I also have a
few papers on this if you would like them.

Subject: [Histonet] Vital stain for mouse v. human cells

Earlier today I think I read a post from someone about staining only mouse 
cells in a human xenograft, and of course, I deleted it instead of saving 
Would someone please give me the general gist of how someone is staining 
only mouse cells?  I thought it was a vital stain of some sort.
