CD31 vs. vWF vs. Meca 32
« on: July 14, 2006, 04:44:15 PM »
hello,

I was wondering if anyone knew the difference between CD31, vWF and Meca32 in terms of how they stain vessels of different ages and sizes.

For example, some think that CD31 stains better for older, more mature vessels because it has to do with the removal of aged neutrophils.

Others think that vWF stains in proportional to the size of the vessels; veins will stain the most, followed by arteries, followed by arterioles and finally capillaries.

Still others think that Meca32 is expressed in mature tissue (such as adult mouse), but is limited to small diameter vessels, such as arterioles and venules.

Any suggestions? I'll take anything.  :D

I am also interesting in this topic. i have done some staining on mouse liver and hepatocellular carcinoma with CD31 and MECA32 but not vWF.
