RE: [Histonet] Immunofluorescent staining of IgG on kidney frozen
Thank you for your suggestions.And George Cole has also suggest that to
me.Thank you all.

>>>Dear Dr.Callis,Dr.Yaskovich,,Dr. Li,and all histonetters,

>>>Still three questions with regarding to kidney immunofluorescent
>>>1) We stain human IgG on kidney frozen sections with antibody from DAKO
>>>(F0202),and dilution is 1:50,but the background is always strong.
>>>Other antibodies to IgA(F0204 from DAKO),IgM(F0203 DAKO),C3(F0201
>>>DAKO),C4(F0169 DAKO)&C1q (F0254) all produce dark background under
>>>fluorescent microscope,which is highly preferred.
>>>Why IgG is so strange? Any problem with the antibody? Or the unspecific
>>>staining for IgG is special?
>>>2) What kind of O.C.T is the best?
>>>Thank you very much!
