Dr. Chris Van der Loos has a wonderful textbook out that addresses these issues.  You can either buy the book or contact Dr. Van der Loos via the histonet.  He usually monitors this website.  He has some excellent protocols which work really nicely.

Subject: [Histonet] Triple stain problem- antigen retreival conflict

Hi all,

I need some suggestion here. A researcher has requested a triple stain on
mouse tissue. We know  the antibodies will cross react but the issue is

Our protocols (worked up and pathologist approved) are such that we have a
conflict of  antigen retrieval.

CD31 : proteinase K (rat ant-mouse)

MAC-3: Ph9 (rat anti- mouse)

Insulin: none ( guinea pig anti -swine)

Any help will be appreciated!!
