Applications : IF

Sample dilution: 1: 100

Review: Representative sections of the liver prepared for immunofluorescence with anti-Plin2 (green, confocal scanning laser microscopy to identify a constitutively associated cytoplasmic lipid droplet coat protein, same magnification in all photomicrographs). The identification of the groups is indicated in the left upper corner. There was increased Plin2 stain in CDD, and still more pronounced in F and FDD. In CDS and FDS the liver structure was restored.
