Hi Cindy,

You would need to know what kinds of nerves your investigator is interested
Sympathetic adrenergic nerves travel along arteries and nerves and are found
in the adventitia (outer wall of a blood vessel). Varicosities, which are
small enlargements along the nerve fibers, are the site of neurotransmitter
Parasympathetic fibers are also found associated with blood vessels in
certain organs such as salivary glands, gastrointestinal glands, and in
genital erectile tissues.

If interested in both fibers, you could start with antibodies
(fluorescent-conjugated) such as Thyrosine hydroxylase, dopamine, serotonin,
substance P, Neuropeitide Y, acetylcholine, VIP, CGRP etc., etc..

Subject: [Histonet] immuno stain for nerve in arterial wall

We had an investigator inquire about flourescent immuno stains for nerve in 
arterial wall (not sure what species they are working with).  I've never
with nerve before.  Can someone give me some advice about what primary
should I 
be searching for?  I realize I have to look in to species cross reactivity
I get that information, but I don't even know what to "search" for.
Thank you,
