[Histonet] Lectin histochemistry for rabbit blood vessels

From:"PALMER Jason \(SVHM\)"

Hello all.

I have been asked to try and find a lectin that will=20allow labelling of rabbit blood vessels (in connective tissues). In our lab we have used Griffonia simplicifolia to label rat vessels, and Lycopersicon esculentum to label=20mouse vessels (both are biotinylated, from Vector).  I can try these on some rat tissue, and I will do this, but I thought a quick question to histonet may be useful, if anyone can point me in the right direction re rabbit labelling. I know there is a book on Lectin Histochemistry (Brooks et al) available that Gayle Callis has recommended, and I am hoping to purchase a copy of=20this, but otherwise I have found it hard to locate basic information on lectin reactivity.

Thanks for any responses,
