[Histonet] c-fos staining


I am carrying out c-fos staining on brain tissue, and have run into a bit
of a problem. The staining seems to work fine up untill I mount the sample
with a xylene based mountant (permount). The stains are there after alcohol
washing, but once I mount it, the stains seem to disappear, or become very
very faint.

Any ideas as to why this is happening, and what I can do about it.
