Laser Capture Microdissection of muscle fiber populations and expression analysis by RT-PCR

...d all MIFs are positive for slow MyHC by immuno-staining. Since mRNA is sensitive to degradation, total time from thawing the slides to dehydration by xylenes was reduced to 32 minutes by combining the histochemical and immunohistochemical reactions and the direct coupling of the antibody to Alexa Fluor 48...

Laser Capture Microdissection (LCM) and Expression Profiling of Long-Range Projection Neurons

...s). Slides were immediately placed in 75% ethanol for 30 seconds for fixation, followed by a 15 second distilled water rinse. NOTE: All alcohols and xylenes should be prepared fresh. Steps using 100% EtOH are particularly sensitive, as small amounts of water at this stage may interfere with microdissection...

...atase enzyme completely inhibits the reaction and does not produce any visible staining.
  • It is important that the alcohols and the xylenes be prepared fresh and not be reused since insufficient dehydra- tion will dramatically affect the ability to perform successful LCM.
