I would assume that the cyto slide was either air-dried or ethanol
You do not need to heat retrieve nor enzyme treat.
Just remove the coverslip, (give a good soak in xylene or equivalent to
remove all the mountant), re-hydrate to water, block endogenous
peroxidase, add the AE1/AE3 antibody and proceed as usual.

Hi All,
  How would you go about destaining a cyto slide and running a
CKAE1/AE3?  I was told that acid alcohol to remove the stain beforehand
may not be necessary as heat retrieval may remove it adequately enough.
Does anyone have any recommendations?
