RE: [Histonet] heart IHC work

From:"Patsy Ruegg"

I will definitely make frozen sections from the frozen heart but I was just
wondering what would be a good way to then process some of it into paraffin
for IHC.  I used to do this with the frozen OCT block by just placing the
block into cold PBS and then eventually into RT fixative after a while, is
this a proper method to preserve antigens?

Subject: [Histonet] heart IHC work

I am involved in a project that requires doing IHC for Lamin A/C on heart
tissue.  If anyone has experience with this please tell me all you know.
Also, since most of this is DNA work they have pieces of fresh heart frozen
at -70 dC.  What would be the best way to fix and process the frozen heart
so that it would be well preserved for IHC.
Thank you for advise in this matter
