Re: [Histonet] TUNEL on mouse bone marrow

I had the same experience and thought it was most likely due to the recombination that occurs in the BM during lymphocyte maturation - so the reagents are giving false positives. So instead I use cleaved caspase 3 IHC.

Subject: [Histonet] TUNEL on mouse bone marrow

Hi, all

  We met a problem with TUNEL staining on mouse BM(10% NBF fixed 
paraffin). The protocol we used works very well with other 
tissues, however, it gave us high background on bone marrow. Can 
anyone give us some suggestions on TUNEL staining using bone 

  Many thanks,
