Hi Everyone, sorry for the delay in responding, my
histonet digest was "lost in space" for a few days. 
We don't do ADG here, but I also use the Dysferlin
antibody from Novacastra (purchased from vector) with
regular IHC (no FITC) for frozen sections. I use Clone
Ham1/7B6(new vector number VP-D503).  
  Air dry frozen sections (usually 20 min or more). 
Dilution:  1:20 at rm temp 1 hr.
 I use with Vector R.T.U. vectastain kit (use
secondary 30 min <@t> 37degrees C. ABC reagent 1hr. rm
temp.  I use DAB from Vector for 15 min.  I usually do
a very pale counterstain or none at all depending on
I hope this is of some help to you.
Have a good weekend,

Jennifer Hofecker

I use  Dysferlin from Novocastra on frozen sections,
but not FITC, just
regular IHC. If you're desperate we can talk.
I use it with a detection kit for mouse, any vendor
will usually do and
DAB as the chromogen. No special scope is needed.

Hello histoneters,
    I could really use any procedural information
anyone has on
Alpha-dystroglycan (antibody only available thru
Upstate) and Dysferlin
(antibody from VectorLabs).
        I have been attempting the stains for 2months
now with no
satisfying results. I have tried several different
procedures/fixatives/incubation times/dilutions/. I
perform a battery 
14 neuromuscular Immunoflourescence, they are all
BEAUTIFUL fitc green
with no background staining (picture perfect)
.....except these two
boogers. PLEASE HELP me make my pathologist proud!!!
