Expression Analysis by RNAscope™ In Situ Hybridization
Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceeding › Chapter
RNA in situ hybridization has an important place in matrix biology, as the only method that allows for in situ discrimination of precise spatial and temporal patterns of gene expression. Whereas immunohistochemistry shows where a matrix protein localizes, ISH identifies the cell of origin. Thus, these methods provide complementary information for insights on the life cycle of matrix molecules, including ADAMTS proteases. This protocol encompasses the staining of tissue sections to reveal expression of the gene of interest.
