[Histonet] IHC on sections from beta-gal stained tissues

I currently am characterizing some transgenic mice by performing beta-gal
staining on whole tissues. The procedure includes a step for
gluteraldehyde fixation before staining. I freeze the tissues on
isopentane and cryosection to determine the localization of the beta-gal
stain. I was wondering if it's also possible to perform IHC on these
sections and if so are there (general) protocols out there. Will antigen
retrievel be necessary, etc.? Thanks in advance.
