Publication protocol

For the detection of neuronal apoptosis, the terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase (TdT)-mediated dUTP nick end-labeling (TUNEL) assay was performed in both Ishikawa and HeLa cells using a commercial kit (TACS® 2 TdT-Fluor Apoptosis Detection Kit) according to the manufacturer's instructions. Briefly, the cells were immersion hydrated, and the fixed and immobilized samples were rinsed with a PBS solution for 10 minutes. The samples were pre-incubated with a 2% proteinase K solution for 15 minutes at room temperature before being incubated in a TdT labeling buffer for 5 minutes and with a labeling reaction mix for 60 minutes in a humidity chamber. After the cells were washed with PBS (0.05%), they were incubated for 30 min in the dark with a Strep-Fluor solution. After an additional washing period, the tissues were covered with a DAPI mounting medium (Vector, #H-1200) and analyzed by fluorescence microscopy with a 495 nm filter.

Are 10 week old samples in formalin still usable?

I have left my tumor samples in formalin for an extended period of time (around 10 weeks). Do you think I will be able to use them for TUNEL assay and get results? Thank you for your help in advance
