Dear People,

Could anyone provide me with a protocol for the sectioning and x-gal 
staining of adult spinal cord? I presume cryosections are my best 
bet....does the tissue require decalcification and if so how is that 
achieved? Can i get away without fixation? It would ensure i don't 
compromise B-gal activity.

Apologies for the barrage of questions. Any help is appreciated.
