Cate - 

Why not do a Blast search for the sequences your anti-mammal antibodies recognize & see if they occur in fish? Some proteins are strongly conserved, or have conserved domains - you might get lucky! I tried a new (to me) antibody last week that was made against an amoeba, and it worked gangbusters on mouse and rat.

Hi all;

Has anyone performed IHC on fish. I have been asked to perform this using several of our routine antibodies that I use on mammals. My gut tells me it won't work but I am a lowly histotech and don't know anything. Seeking knowledge from learned tech's with experience in such matters
