Interleukin (IL)-8 is a multifunctional cytokine that stimulates the
division of endothelial cells. ISH and immunohistochemical analysis reveals
that IL-8 is localized in the cytoplasm of gastric tumor cells. Try a
formalin-fixed, paraffin embedded gastric carcinoma. I have also seen
lymphocytic staining in hyperplastic palatine tonsil.

	Was wondering if anyone could recommend a good positive control
tissue for use with
	an IL-8 antibody.  We are trying to get the antibody to stain
formalin-fixed, paraffin
	embedded tissue but are not sure what tissue to use as control to
give good positive
	staining.  Any help greatly appreciated.
