The MBs were collected from the chip and then fixed using PFA, as above. The MBs were incubated overnight in a 30% sucrose solution at 4°C. Then, the sucrose solution was exchanged to O.C.T. medium (optimal cutting temperature; Tissue-Tek) in inclusion molds, which were slowly cooled down using dry ice in ethanol. The molds were then placed at −80°C. On the day of the experiments, the O.C.T. blocks were cut at 7 μm using a cryostat (CM3050 S, Leica). The cryosections were placed on glass slides (SuperFrost Plus Adhesion, Thermo Fisher Scientific), dried at 37°C, and rehydrated using PBS. The cryosections were permeabilized and stained for COX-2, as above. The slides were lastly mounted in mounting medium containing DAPI (Fluoromount-G, Invitrogen).
