RE: PCNA on guinea pig

From:"Smith, Allen"

Romer (Vertebrate Paleontology), Parsons (The Vertebrate Body), Vaughn
(Mammalogy), and McFarland (Vertebrate Life), and Walker (Functional Anatomy
of the Vertebrates) assert that guinea pigs (and other rodents) are no
closer to rabbits than they are to humans.  Rabbits are only distantly
related to other placental mammals.  Their closest relatives (aside from
pikas) are probably the hoofed animals (McFarland).

I would try to stay away from using a rabbit polyclonal antibody on guinea
pigs, because they're too closely related and you may get a lot of
background (due to binding to the endogenous immunoglobulins).
