[Histonet] rodent smooth muscle marker

Hi all.  I am asking this question on behalf of a colleague.  She wishes to measure rat uterine smooth muscle cell volume over gestation and would like to have a marker that would delinate the smooth muscle plasma membrane.  I have looked at some of my Masson trichrome-stained mouse placental sections and this *might* be helpful for her; however, I was thinking one of you might know of a good lectin or antibody marker.  Like I said, she works on rat tissue, but I wouldn't mind receiving some advice on mouse uterine smooth muscle cell markers, too.
Thanks a bunch!
