[Histonet] CD25 staining on frozen tissue

I am trying to get CD25 staining to work in order to identify T reg cells in mouse tissue sections.
So far I really haven't had much luck. I have both a 7D4 biotinylated anti-CD25 from Pharmingen
and a PC61 Fitc-conjugated anti-CD25 from eBioscience and I am using Spleen as a positive control.
I am using fresh frozen sections that have not been fixed at all. I have tried various fixations
with Acetone and PFA. I would think PFA might block staining as many people have had trouble
getting staining on parafin sections. I have played with many different antibody concentrations
and we have secondaries and amplification protocols that have worked for other biotinylated and
fitc-conjugated antibodies quite well using strep-hrp and anti-fitc-hrp along with a TSA cy3 or
fluorescein kit. Does anyone have a protocol or some tips on making these antibodies stain for
immunofluorescence? I know this is a common stain, but I simply have had no luck with it. Any
help is appreciated thanks.
