Immunohistochemistry (IHC) is a powerful technique that employs antibodies to target and bind to specific markers on cells. By using tags that can be visualized under a microscope, such as chromogenic or fluorescent staining, IHC allows for precise identification and localization of these markers.
In clinical settings, IHC staining is widely used to diagnose abnormal cells, such as those found in cancerous tumors. Molecular markers specific to certain cellular events, such as proliferation or apoptosis, can be detected through IHC staining. In research settings, IHC is used to gain insight into the distribution and localization of biomarkers and differentially expressed proteins in various parts of biological tissues.
