Teri et al,

You did not mention the species.  If the staining was on human duodenal 
biopsies (tough thing to do on a mouse!) rather than mouse tissue then 
these markers work. The Mouse remains a total bust!  Boo Hoo! Must be the 
critter aka species differences rather than living Down Under, eh!??
