RE: [Histonet] alkaline phosphatase staining


the enzyme alk.phos. stain for osteoblasts will not work on decalcified ffpe tissues in my experience.  it will work limitedly on bone processed into GMA without decal and cold methanol fixed.  I hear that there are antibodies to alk.phos. but I have not used them yet, has anyone else?

I am interested in doing some alkaline phosphatase staining in decalcified, paraffin-fixed mouse long bone sections.  Does anyone have any experience with alk phos staining, who could recommend a protocol or even a commercial kit?

Thank you!
