[Histonet] Saturated Fat Staining

From:"Griffin-Reyes, Michelle A"

I am having some troubles finding a way to be able to stain saturated
lipids in FFPE mouse tissues. Osmium tetroxide and oil red O stain well
but they are only showing unsaturated lipids. My lab is looking to see
if there is a difference in lipid content of treated mice vs. control
mice. So far, we have seen very little variability in the amount of
unsaturated lipids during quantification which leads us to believe there
may be a difference in saturated fats (based off of human results that
we have our mouse model based off of). Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks so much for the help!
