Wholemount antibody staining (CSH Protocols) (Wallingford lab)
There are currently several published protocols for this. We (Wallingford lab) have recently published a protocol in CSH Protocols:
That protocol draws from the many excellent previous protcols including:
Robinson, C. and Guille, M. 1999. Immunohistochemistry of Xenopus embryos. Methods Mol. Biol. 127: 89–97.
Sive, H.L., Grainger, R.M., and Harland, R.M. 2000. Early development of Xenopus laevis: A laboratory manual. Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, Cold Spring Harbor, NY.
