[Histonet] Lectin histochemistry for rabbit blood vessels

Hello all.

I have been asked to try and find a lectin that will allow labelling of rabbit blood vessels (in connective tissues). In our lab we have used Griffonia simplicifolia to label rat vessels, and Lycopersicon esculentum to label mouse vessels (both are biotinylated, from Vector).  I can try these on some rat tissue, and I will do this, but I thought a quick question to histonet may be useful, if anyone can point me in the right direction re rabbit labelling. I know there is a book on Lectin Histochemistry (Brooks et al) available that Gayle Callis has recommended, and I am hoping to purchase a copy of this, but otherwise I have found it hard to locate basic information on lectin reactivity.

Thanks for any responses,
