RE: text books + antibody

From:"Monson, Frederick C."

Other than the proximal stomach and probably a few other alimentary
differences, one can expect the mouse to show up pretty much like the human.
I used to use my knowledge of hair structure differences to give my students
the chance to test me with vertebrate, non-vertebrate, mouse, human, etc.
tissues.  They got me about as many times as I couldn't find a stray hair to
use.  I once got them all:  liver, lung, kidney (that was pretty easy),
skeletal and cardiac muscle, etc., all because hair was everywhere.  Without
the hair, it would have been a "crap shoot" most of the time.  A knowledge
of anatomy and anatomic dimensions also helps.  

When I worked on the rabbit, I made my own set of "normals" and they became
my reference.  I didn't worry about a rabbit histology book.  All I looked
for was a rabbit anatomy book.  If there is a "book", I would ask about it
at Jackson Laboratories. or NCI (URL:

OR, visit the virtual mouse at:

Regards and hope this helps,
