Abstract

Tissue microarray technology was used to establish immunohistochemistry protocols and to determine the specificity of new antisera against various -like bacteria for future use on formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded tissues. The antisera exhibited strong reactivity against autologous antigen and closely related heterologous antigen, but no cross-reactivity with distantly related species.
