I need to stain differentially small blood and lymph vessels in a paraffin embedded mouse soft tissue surrounding the knee. Ideally, I would like to use robust antibodies, that are standard in the field and have short incubation times.
So far, I found that CD31 is used to stain lymphatics, but is seems to also stain blood vessels.
There are also D2-40 lymphatic marker and Factor V11 blood vessel marker from Biocare.
Which ones to choose?
