AW: [Histonet] DIF tissue in GLUT

we do DIF on formalin fixed renal biopsies routinly. To get good results we
perform Protease digestion before DIF. I don't have the protocol here, but
we use Proteinase K from Dako at RT for 3-4 min, and the antibodies are
between 1:20 and 1:40 für 30 min.
I don't know, if that would help with glutaraldehyde-fixed specimen, but
worth trying.

Dear John and other knowledgeable Histonetters and Gurus of the trade....

Renal bx tissue core has been placed in Gluteraldehyde/Trumps EM
fixative by mistake (we all make mistakes) - we now need to do DIF
Does anyone out there have a method for this?
