you need to block the 1st primary antibody with IgG, and then use
appropriate serum, before using another primary from the same species.
I would use a different primary AB from a different species, i.e. if u used
goat anti.. The 1st time (when mistake was made) now use rabbit anti..
If you have to use another primary from the same species - I suggest review
excellent protocols on jacksonimmuno.com (labeling with 2 primaries from the
same species). This works, although may give you some background if blocking
is not done properly.
