Are you staining tissues with suspected tumors caused by the mouse mammary tumor VIRUS (MMTV) or just any type of mouse mammary tumor?

Chris (and any one else who might have some information),

I guess I should have been more clear in my request for mouse mammary tumor
Abs.  Yes, I assume that human cytokeratin Abs will cross-react with the
mouse tissue.  They have done so on all other species that I've used them on
here in the Vet Diag Lab.  What I need is an antibody specific for mammary
tumor, so that we can differentiate these tumors from salivary gland tumors,
etc.  I need to be able to say that it is more than just an epithelial
tumor, or even more than a glandular or ductual epithelial tumor.  Is there
such a beast that will work in mouse tissue?
