Sites of probe hybridization were detected by applying 100 [micro]L of rabbit anti-biotin antibody (1:100 dilution with 2 mg/mL bovine serum albumin in 1x PBS) at 37 [degrees]C for 45 min, followed by using 100 [micro]L fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC) labeled goat anti-rabbit antibody (Enzo Diagnostics, New York; 1:100 dilution).
The D3 Duet(TM) DFA kits use brighter, easily distinguishable fluorescent stain colors to improve interpretation of virus-infected cell cultures by combining monoclonal antibodies labeled with either Fluorescein Isothiocyanate (FITC) or R-Phycoerythrin (R-PE) in one reagent for simultaneous detection.

After washing, these cells were first incubated with a monoclonal anti-insulin antibody (1:200 dilution; Sigma, Madrid, Spain) for 2 hr and then for 1 hr with a secondary anti-body, anti-mouse IgG-conjugated fluorescein isothiocyanate (IgG-FITC; 1:200 dilution; Sigma), both at room temperature.
