RE: [Histonet] RE: detection of HRP in FFPE sections- ?antibody

From:"Patsy Ruegg"

I have done DAB on ffpe tissue's to detect endogenous peroxidase
(myleoperoxidase) with success to identify neutrophils, just don't use
h202 to block for endogenous peroxidase.

Dear Shaumik,
I guess that HRP was used as tracer in some kind of labeling experiment
in an whole organ, animal or something, followed by fixation and
As you know endogenous peroxidase activity in erythrocytes and
neutrophils perfectly survives the whole embedding circus quite well
(unfortunately to many of us). So would try this with your labeling HRP
as well. There was a Dako antibody (rabbit) available long time ago.
Also at Hope this helps.

Hi histonetters,

I was wondering if any of you out there have experience of detection of
HRP in formalin fixed, paraffin embedded tissue.  I assume that the
process of fixation and tissue processing will destroy the enzymatic
activity of HRP, rendering the usual histochemical reagents useless.
Are there antibodies out there that anyone's used?  Thanks a lot for
your help,

Shaumik Adhya
