Genetic Manipulation of the Mouse Developing Hypothalamus Through In Utero Electroporation

Researchers have used the Compresstome® in their procedure to section mouse embryo hypothalamus that has been injected with DNA and electroporated. This procedure demonstrates how it is possible to transfect nuclei in the hypothalamus region which are less accessible than those in superficial regions. Following this procedure additional experiments can be performed such as immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization.

Lipophilic dye, in situ Hybridization, Immunohistochemistry, and Histology

Explore how scientists use the Compresstome® vibrating microtome to create tissue slices that combine lipophilic dye tracing, whole mount in situ hybridizationimmunohistochemistry, and histology to extract the maximal possible amount of data.
