RE: [Histonet] damaged cartilage

From:"Liz Chlipala"



What type of tissue are you looking at?  Why donít you just stain with toluidine blue or safranin O.  Both of these stain proteoglycan, areas of cartilage damage will show loss of staining. There are also pathology parameters such as fibrillation, loss of chondrocytes and chondrocyte cloning that are characteristic of cartilage damage.  If you feel you need to use a IHC stain, you could try collagen II.  Articular cartilage should stain positive for collagen II.  But I would initally try the special stains.

Does anyone know of a good antibody for damaged cartilage?  I found one very expensive one in Canada, but it is cost prohibitive.

 

Thanks,
