[Histonet] Question about acid phosphatase staining on FFPE and control tissue

We are going to try acid phosphatase staining on FFPE cardiac tissue (I have a couple of papers where this has been performed with success).  My question for any of you with expertise in this area is what type of tissue should I use as a Method Development control?  Would there be acid phosphatase activity in virtually any normal muscle tissue (ie the epitheloid cell lineage) or possibly just choose prostate?  Just curious if any of you out there may have a good suggestion for the control tissue.
