RE: [Histonet] Melanin problem

When I'm dealing with endogenous brown pigment I switch to a AP detection
system and use Fast Red or another red chromagen or if you want to stay with
a HRP system then use AEC.

I don't recall this question, but I would be interested in how you get 
around the problem of epidermal pigmentation if you are looking for 
protein expression in the epidermis; do you bleach the tissue (and if so, 
does that affect antigenicity of the proteins), or can you choose a 
detection chromogen that has a wild color, like a Barney purple color? 
Thanks for your help.
