Immunohistochemistry Protocol

John M. Sanders B.S. Cardiovascular Research Center, University of Virginia Charlottesville, VA.

The procedure below has been proven to be effective for labeling of PECAM-1, ICAM and VCAM using validated antibodies.

1. Deparaffinize and rehydrate 5 min tray

2 x xylene

2 x absolute ETOH

2 x 95 % ETOH

2 x 70 % ETOH

2 x milliQ H2O

1. Destroy endogenous peroxidase activity

200 ml methanol + 3 ml (30% H2O2) in slide tub

  • make just before use, Incubate 30 minutes, RT

2a. wash H2 O 5 min room temp.

1. Make up unmasking solution (Vector Labs; 4oC)

  • Shake well before measuring
  • 320 milliQ H2O + 3 ml unmasking solution
  • Mix by inversion

1. Rinse in milliQ H2O in tub

2. In slide tub with “fill” mark, fill all 24 slots in slide holder with “blank slides” if necessary, add unmasking solution to fill line, COVER and microwave for 20 minutes Replenish with dH20 at:

  • 15 minutes remaining
  • 11
  • 7
  • 3
  • 1

1. Cool slides in tub, covered, at room temp for 1 hour

2. During 1 hour, make up 0.5% FSGO in PBS (1 500 ml bottle PBS + 2.5 ml FSGO; allow 15 min for FSGO to come out of pipet)

3. Transfer to tub with plain room temperature PBS, 5 min

4. Make up avidin blocking solution:

For 1 ml:

  • 1 ml PBS/FSGO
  • 100 ul normal serum of same species as secondary antibody

4 drops avidin blocking solution (Vector Labs)

  • Invert tube to mix

5. Circle vessels with ‘pap pen’ ALWAYS KEEP SLIDES MOIST

6. Add blocking solution within circles; 1 hour in humidified chamber at room temperature

7. Aspirate off blocking solution

8. Add primary antibody to vessels on slides.

For 4 slides: antibody

  • PBS/FSGO 1 ml
  • normal serum 100 ul
  • biotin blocking solution (Vector Labs) 4 drops

9. Incubate 4 oC overnight in humidified chamber.

Day 2:

1. Aspirate primary antibody solution and wash in FSGO/PBS in tub for 5 min at room temperature; agitate 2. Make up secondary antibody:

per ml:

  • 5 ul secondary antibody
  • 100 ul normal serum
  • 1 ml FSGO/PBS

3. Blot slides with kimwipe and apply secondary antibody; incubate in humidified chamber 1 hour, room temperature

4. During incubation, make up ABC solution from kit: per ml:

  • 1 ml plain PBS
  • 20 ul A solution
  • 20 ul B solution

Allow to rock at room temperature for at least 30 min in order to form complex

5. Aspirate secondary antibody solution and wash in FSGO/PBS in tub for 5 min at room temperature; agitate

6. Blot slides and apply ABC; incubate 30 min at room temperature

7. Make up DAB solution: Approximately 30 min before using; add H2 O2 just before use

  • 10 ml plain PBS
  • 1 DAB tablet
  • 7.5 ul H2 O2 (30%)

Test DAB and ABC by adding small amount of DAB to a small amount of left over ABC, should turn dark brown immediately.

8. Wash with agitation in plain PBS, 5 min room temperature

9. Blot slides and apply DAB solution, incubate 5 min room temperature

10. Wash in dH20, 5 min room temperature

11. Counterstain in filtered (#1 Whatman) Hematoxylin I (not Mayer’s); 4-5 min

12. Rinse in running tap water until clear, 4-5 min. Return hematoxylin to bottle for reuse

13. Blueing if needed for 1 min; wash in tap water

14. Dehydrate, 5 minutes each:

  • 3 x absolute ETOH
  • 2 x xylene

15. Coverslip
