Hi Ali,
Although I do not ever perform endothelial immunohistochemistry in our laboratory, I know it is common to use an antibody against CD31 to selectively stain endothelial cells and this may work well in pituitary tissue.
Hope that helps,

Hi, I am just new in this group, so I hope this is the way I can get help.

I am doing histochemistry on human hypothalamus and I need to stain
endothelial cells. I tried UEA-I (lectin) and I got microvessels stained as
the whole and like a line. But I would like to have an image of the
endothelial cells of even larger vessels, the way that I can show cell by
cell in a circular shape of a vessel.

Could you help me and tell me what antibody or lectin helps me best.
