Immunostaining of estrogen receptor in paraffin sections of breast carcinomas using monoclonal antibody D75P3 gamma: effects of fixation.

Abstract

Immunostaining of estrogen receptor was carried out on paraffin sections of breast carcinomas using an anti-estrophilin monoclonal antibody (D75P3 gamma) and the avidin-biotin technique. The tumors were fixed in Bouin's solution or in formalin for varying periods of time at room temperature or at 4 degrees C. Best results were obtained following fixation in… (More)
