The Abcam mavrophage marker (Ab 8740) and the Dako Mac 387(M0747) 
claim to cross react with swine. The resin sections would need to de 
resin the sections first.


Dear all,

I need to identify macrophages and endothelial cells in resin embedded
pig blood vessels with stent. I couldnt find any specific primary
antibodies against swine macrophages or endothelial cells and has to
rely on cross reactivity pirmarily intended in human tissue. Has any one
tried such cross reactive antibodies in swine tissue or is there
specific ones against pig which ive missed. Please help
