We are looking for an antibody that will label HIF-1alpha in paraffin
sections in mouse tissue. Would prefer not to do mouse on mouse. There
are 2 goat polyclonals I found in a search, from Santa Cruz - prodcuts
sc-8711 and sc-12542. The data sheets don't mention any use with
immuno's on FFPE, but a paper I recently came across uses one of them
(can't be sure which one yet...) on FFPE sections of mouse pancreatic
islets. Also in my searching I found a Chemicon rabbit polyclonal -
AB3883 - which they claim has been used with immuno's on FFPE sections.
Has anybody had success with any of these products? Any feedback greatly

We did try a Novus Biologicals monoclonal (NB 100-123) on rat tissue a
few years back with little success. My impression is that HIF1-a
immunostaining generally speaking is not easy to achieve...
