Hi all,
I have been trying to stain fixed/permeabilized cells grown on coverslips
with IgM mouse monoclonal antibodies.  I use biotinylated horse anti-mouse
followed by streptavidin-CY3.  I have tried a number of dilutions of all
the reagents involved but I get background - red specks all over the cells.
I have tried different permeabilization and fixation methods.  Nothing
seems to help.
I do not know what to do next.  I would appreciate any suggestions.
