Single staining using an antibody raised towards GABA.
Primary antibody: Anti-GABA antibody produced in rabbit [Sigma, cat: A2052]
Secondary antibody: Goat anti Rabbit HRP-conjugated [DAKO, cat: P0448]
Protocol in short:
Sections were washed (3x10min), endogenous peroxidase blocked, treated with target retrieval solution and washed again (3×10 min) followed by incubation with a rabbit antibody directed towards GABA (1:250) (SIGMA-ALDRICH) overnight. The following day, sections were washed (3×10 min) and incubated for 1 hour with secondary goat anti rabbit HPRT conjugated antibody (1:400) (DAKO). Sections were washed (3×10 min) and HPRT detected by adding DAB substrate solution. Sections were then washed (3×10 min) and mounted on slides, rehydrated, counterstained with hematoxylin, dehydrated and mounted with cover slips.
Staining appears specific, showing that the used antibody may be appropriate for staining GABA as a proxy marker for PV expressing interneurons in a double staining setup.
