NKX2.5 in Human Heart. NKX2.5 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human heart using Goat Anti-Human NKX2.5 Biotinylated Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # BAF2444) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Lower panel shows a lack of labeling if primary antibodies are omitted and tissue is stained only with secondary antibody followed by incubation with detection reagents.
