Re: [Histonet] IFN-y and IL-6

From:Gayle Callis


You will NOT be able to do IFN gamma on any tissue sections. You need to 
read Chris van der Loos's publication on this, impossible on tissue 
sections.  As long as IL-6 is membrane bound, you should be ok.  Don't even 
bother with IFN, for that matter IL4 either.
I will attach his article to you privately, so you can see why IFN will not 
work. He gave the NSH International speaker talk on this in Charlotte.

If I were to do the IL6, EDTA would be the choice.
