I had little or no success with HMB45 on canine tissue.  I use Melan-A 
exclusively; that works fine.

Hi histonetters,

Anyone out there successfully using a monoclonal HMB45 antibody on
canine tissues?  I think I've read a dozen papers all with different
protocols and my eyes are about to pop out of my head!  Currently I'm at
a 1:50 dilution with a pretreatment in a citrate buffer (pressure
cooker). I have my choice of a polymer based detection as well as a
biotinylated detection.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks in
