RE: [Histonet] CD34 and CD31 in paraffin mouse tissue

From:Michelle McDonald

Dear Liz,

Would you know whether this antibody from Santa Cruz would work on rat
tissue. I am currently trying to get a CD31 antibody from Calbiochem to work
on FFPE rat bone sections (decalcified) and I am having no luck. Can you
suggest an antibody I could try or recommend an antigen retrieval technique.
I have tried Proteinase K and Pepsin.

Thank you in advance for your advice

Santa Cruz has a goat polyclonal for CD-31 (PECAM-1) that will work in FFPE
tissue with antigen retrieval. Cat SC-1056.

Hello Histonetters,
we are looking to immunostain endothelial cells (vessels) in FFPE mouse
There is no cross-reactivity to the human epitopes, therefore the antibodies
human tissue don't work (we have tried it). Is there anyone out there who
can help us 
? (Clones, suppliers, ...)
Answers wanted :-)

Best wishes for the rest of this year
