[Histonet] Why use Calcium Chloride in Trypsin Antigen Retrieval?

From:Merced Leiker

Does anyone know why CaCl2 is used in trypsin buffers for retrieval of 
antigen in paraformaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue sections?  Is 
it really necessary?  Can I just use a Trypsin-EDTA solution we already 
have in the lab?
