Hello all,

What about capillary endothelium in rat muscle fixed in formalin and
embedded in paraffin? What would be the best staining? I tried lectin
GSL-B4 and CD31 but can't seem to get nice results.

Are you staining mouse tissue or human tissue? If mouse tissue, the vWF
antibody from DAKO as well as the goat polyclonal anti-VE-Cadherin Ab
from R&D work very well. If human tissue, the anti-CD31 from DAKO, clone
JC/70 is excellent.
