1. Deparaffinize the section in 3 changes of xylene, 5 minutes each.
2. Wash the section in 96%, 80% and 70% ethyl alcohol for 10 minutes each.
3. Rinse in distilled water.
4. Block the endogenous peroxidase by incubating the tissue in 3% hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) for 10 minutes.
5. Wash in distilled water.
6. For antigen retrieval: Immerse the slide in Tris-EDTA buffer*, pH 9.0 and incubate at 95-97C in water bath for 25 minutes. (Alternatively adjust to your own protocol, keeping the required pH)
7. Remove the staining to room temperature and let the slide to cool (in Tris-EDTA buffer, pH 9.0) for 15 minutes.
8. Rinse in distilled water, 2 x 5 minutes.
9. Wash in PBS (phosphate buffer saline, pH 7.0-7.5) supplemented with 0.05% of Tween-20 (buffer A), 2 x 5 minutes.
10. Incubate the section with primary antibody at the dilution 1:100 - 1:200 for 1 hour in the closed wet chamber.
11. Wash 3 x 5 minutes with buffer A.
12. Apply the secondary antibody (the protocol depends on the supplier), and proceed with immunohistochemistry protocol (HRP - Peroxide - DAB).
13. Wash 3 x 5 minutes with buffer A.
14. Apply the chromogen (DAB), 1-3 minutes.
15. Wash in water, 2 x 5 minutes.
16. Stain in hematoxylin for 5 minutes.
17. Wash in water, 2 x 5 minutes.
18. Stain in hematoxylin for 5 minutes.
19. Wash in distilled water, 3 x 2 minutes.
20. Mount the slide for observation.
