RE: Hi Patsy

To Jim and all looking to do collagen staining on rabbit.  I have not done
this but I would not hesitate to try the mouse monoclonal collagen
antibodies for collagen from U of Iowa Hybridoma Bank on rabbit tissues.  I
have used these antibodies successfully on human, rat, sheep and kangraroo,
I bet they will work on rabbit.  Pepsin should be used for digestion, I do
not recommend HIER.  I would just try it instead of trying to find
antibodies specific against rabbit collagen.

		Hi Patsy,

		I haven't seen you on the histonet lately.  I know you have
experience in
		cartilage and I'm asking for your help (again).  Have you
ever performed
		anti-collagen I & II on rabbit tissue?  I can't find the
antibody anywhere.
