I have just started to set-up my very first IN-SITU RT-PCR. All the
protocols for that procedure I've seen up to date (including famous book
by Nuovo) call for 15hours fixation in 4% paraformaldehyde. I work with
lymphocytes (cytospines).
	1. Do you think that this 15 hours fixation should apply to my samples? 

	2. What extra steps do people do on top of DNAse and proteinase K? 
	3. What to use - proteinase K or maybe other enzyme? 

Thanks a lot for your suggestions!
