Hi Patricia,
What tissue (animal / human) are you using?  How has it been fixed /  processed?
If you are using 10%NBF fixed, paraffin-embedded mouse tissue, you can use Biocare's CD31 with a simple indirect protocol.  I come in with my primary (overnight at 5ug/ml) after Prot. K digestion (DAKO ready-to-use), and then come in with a secondary Alexa fluor 488 against my primary.
It work really well.  I have also used it for frozen sections.
I hope this helps.

Dear Listservers,
            I have tried MANY protocols and I am unable to obtain a working protocol for the CD31 antibody.
            I have tried both the CD31 rat monoclonal and a CD31 rabbit polyclonal.

Thanks in advance for your help.
