Hi , 
   I haven't started yet , but am about to try von Willebrand's factor ( 
Factor VIII  ).   I'll be doing it on rat,  first in FFPE to see if it
and then on osmium fixed Epon embedded.   Wish me luck!

              I chose Factor 8 because of a paper by Ulger et al , Anat 
Histol Embryol. 2002 Feb:31(1):31-5   where he compares various 
rat endothelial cell markers : Factor 8 , RECA-1, PECAM-1 , ICAM-
1, OX-43 and ZO-1.   

I am buying my anti body from  Biocare Medical and their tech support
suggests trying a pepsin treatment as they use it on the FFPE tissue at 37 C
for 5 min.  

               Hope this helps , don't hesitate to email me if you have any
more questions,
