Which antibody are you using?  We have had great success with Santa Cruz (goat
polyclonal) until I ordered a new lot this past month.  When I called them, they
indicated to me that they were having problems with their goat, literally.  I
guess it had stopped producing antibodies to CD31 that work in IHC
(interestingly enough, they still work in Westerns).  They hope to have the
problem resolved within the next month, with a new goat.

I am having a problem getting my CD31 to work.  The protocol was for an
overnight incubation and pepsin pretreatment.  I couldn't get it to work
this way so I altered it a bit by using trilogy for AR and a two hour
incubation for the primary ab.  Does anyone have any ideas?  This seemed to
work well for a while but once again, I'm having problems with it.  Any
input would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance!
