Re: Capillary density in Skeletal Muscle

From:Ronnie Houston (by way of histonet)

We've had best results using the lectin, UEA-1, although satisfactory
information can be achieved with a PAS after diastase treatment.

Good Afternoon Folks,
Has anyone had experience with staining capillaries in skeletal muscles? I
have a researcher that is interested in looking at the density of
capillaries in skeletal muscle,versus other small vessels under a variety of
conditions. He  was thinking of trying an Immuno to visualize. I was hoping
that someone "out there in Histoland"  had a great suggestion either of a
special stain or an appropriate antibody.
Thank you in advance!
