Comparison of immunofluorescent findings in kidney after snap-freezing and formalin fixation.


Two types of tissue preparation for immunofluorescent staining were compared with sections of the same kidney. In one, formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded kidney sections were incubated with pronase (IF-PRON). The optimal pronase exposure for bright, specific IF and a mild background IF, suitable for the whole set of antisera was determined (pronase 0.75 g/l… (More)
