Tetracycline Labeling of Bone

From:George Spurr <gspurr@interchange.ubc.ca>

    I  am labeling bone in Vivo with Tetracycline, Calcein and Yylenol
Orange at different Time intervals. I  process and cut the Undecalcified
bone in plastic.

My question is This:
        Would the three labels dissapear in decalcified bone?
I know they label calcium (in vivo), but would the signal not still be
there if you removed the calcium later.
