Regarding double staining with TUNEL and something else, here are a few 
references to get you started.

associated nuclear antigen (p105) during cell cycle in normal lymphocytes 
and promyelocytic leukemia cells (HL-60). Analytical and Quantitative 
Cytology and Histology 17(3): 183-188, 1995.

nick end-labeling (TUNWL)-positive cells and multiple immunohistochemical 
markers in a single tissue section. BioTechniques 19: 800-805, 1995.

death in bone marrow biopsies of myelodysplastics reveals extensive 
apoptosis as the probable basis for infective hematopoeisis. Am. J.

Mundle, S. et al. Novel insitu double labeling for simultaneous detection 
of proliferation and apoptosis. J. Histochem. Cytochem. 42(12): 1533-1537, 

I hope this helps.

Is there a method which allows a fibroblast cell line to be stained up with 
an antibody for a cytoplasmic protein (not a surface marker) eg lacZ 
transfectedand then to 'stain up' for apoptotic nuclei via TUNEL or
similar so that one
may determine the number of lacZ +ve cells which are apoptotic?
All of the papers I have read so far describe methods for doing one or the 
other, not both - one in fact states that the two are incompatible under 
their experimental conditions.
Many thanks for any help
