RE: Muscle histochemistry.
I have started using a double labeled Immuno, for slow and fast fibre types.
You can distinguish Type 1, 2a and 2b all in one stain on FFPE sections. The
procedure is from Journal of Clinical Pathology 2002;55:375-380, title "
Validation of a simple, rapid, and economical technique for distinguishing
type1 and 2 fibres in fixed and frozen skeletal muscle". The stain is really
beautiful! Let me know if you would like my protocol.
