SYNOPSIS:

This protocol describes how to immunofluorescence stain for Ki67, a marker of cellular proliferation, in paraffin-embedded tissue sections.


ABSTRACT:

This protocol describes how to stain sections of formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue for Ki67, a protein marker of proliferation expressed during S, G2, and M phase of the cell cycle. A primary antibody is used to identify and bind to Ki67, and a secondary antibody conjugated to a fluorescent probe identifies and binds the primary antibody for imaging by fluorescence.


 
SAFETY PROCEDURES:

This protocol involves use of xylenes. Handle xylenes with appropriate gloves (nitrile, latex, or other gloves rated for use with xylenes). Xylenes should be kept in a chemical safety hood at all times.
