RE: Antigen Retrieval Methods
|From:||Jim Manavis <email@example.com>|
What solution have you used for retrieval with microwaving/boiling. In our
laboratory we perform a Citrate microwave retrieval (pH 6.0) for 10 minutes
for alpha-synuclein. You might need to try a 20 minute or even try using a
different pH solution, like DAKO TRS, or even EDTA which is again a
different pH. Possibly you could try microwave retrieval followed by Trypsin
(370C for 3 min). With the tissue being in an aldehyde for that long you
will have to consider using a much harsher retrieval regimen.

Subject: Antigen Retrieval Methods
I currently have a rare Parkinson's case that I
am having trouble staining. This tissue has been
fixing in formalin for 13yrs. I am attempting to
stain this tissue with several alpha-synuclein
antibodies that we produce. To date, I have tried
formic acid, proteinase-K, microwave, and boiling
treatments. Any advice on other methods that might be
worth trying would be appreciated. Thanks for your
