Subject: [Histonet] Pig endothelium

Dear All,

Does anyone have any experience with staining pig endothelium, specifically keeping rings of blood vessels alive?

I am collecting fresh tissue from the slaughterhouse and incubating it with tumour necrosis factor to induce VCAM-1 expression.  However, I suspect that the tissue quickly loses viability and this is why I canšt visualise any VCAM with IHC. 

Does anyone have any tips for keeping the rings of tissue going/fixing/antigen retrieval?

Many thanks
