We are doing tunnel. We have done caspase 3 and it does not correlate with

You could look at performing tunel in which you would need to purchase a kit
or you could stain immunohistochemically for cleaved caspase 3, which is a
marker of apoptosis.  The heat should not affect the detection of apoptosis
in fixed tissue.  To induce apoptosis in cell culture you can place the
cells at 36°C for 30 minutes, but you need to control the temp.

I need a protocol for apoptosis for paraffin embedded tissue. Has incubating
paraffin sections at 50 degrees for a certain length of time   any effect on
the out come of the apoptosis staining? Thanks.
