Re: [Histonet] Apoptosis detection

From:"Bryan Hewlett"


Apoptosis is apoptosis and may well be part of the meiotic process.
You may wish to consider APAF1 or the one of the caspase antibodies from
Novacastra as an alternative to TUNEL.
You could also check with Neil Hand in the pathology IHC lab at Queens for
his recommendation.

Hi all

I am looking for an IHC technique to detect apoptosis cells on testis
sections. I have previously used the Tunnel assay but would like an
alternative as often meiotic cells are also labelled and I want to avoid

I have seen the Histone labelling assay by UPSTATE but I think that is
mainly for ICC not IHC.

Thanks for any help
