Immunohistochemistry (IHC) on 4% PFA perfusion fixed tissue with 24h PFA post fixation. Immunoreactivity is usually revealed by fluorescence or a chromogenic substrate. Some antibodies require special fixation methods or antigen retrieval steps. For details, please refer to the ”Remarks” section.', $event)" style="cursor: help;">IHC: yes
Due to the positive charge of mCLING, negatively charged coatings of cover-slips should be avoided. We recommend a positively charged coating like poly-L-lysine (PLL). mCLING is a fixable dye, but paraformaldehyde alone is not able to fix this molecule sufficiently. Therefore, a mixture of 4 %paraformaldehyde (PFA) and 0.2 % glutaraldehyde is strongly advised. For detailed protocols see Revelo NH & Rizzoli SO, 2016.
Only hydrophilic dyes are suitable for effective coupling. Since the dye itself can have an impact on the mCling properties, full functionality of the resulting conjugate cannot be guaranteed.
