Immunohistochemistry (Frozen sections)
Adult mouse testes were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde. Tissue was embedded in O.C.T. and frozen. 5 micron sections were cut and transferred to slides. Sections were permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 in PBS, and blocked with 3% BSA in 0.1% Triton X-100 + PBS. Sections were incubated with either (A) no primary antibody or (B ) anti-TRA98 (Abcam ab82527) at 1:1000 dilution for 1 h at RT. Sections were then washed 3X with 0.1% Triton X-100 in PBS and Donkey-Anti Rat 647 (Abcam ab150155) applied at a 1:500 dilution. Sections were then mounted after washing 3X with 0.1% Triton X-100 in PBS.
