RE: [Histonet] Lectin histochemistry for rabbit blood vessels

From:"Rittman, Barry R"

Two major sources that I know of.
1.	The Lectins by Sharon and Lis. While this is an older text
(1986) it has a very complete listing re lectin specificities and
2.	Vector Labs.
As we are advised not to send attachment for fear of clogging the system
I will email the  relevant pages to me separately.

Subject: [Histonet] Lectin histochemistry for rabbit blood vessels

Hello all.

I have been asked to try and find a lectin that will allow 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 mouse 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 this, but otherwise I
have found it hard to locate basic information on lectin reactivity.

Thanks for any responses,
