In this study, by using a polyclonal antibody against factor VIII- related antigen (FVIII-RA), we have examined the expression of FVIII-RA in the blood and lymphatic vessels of the chick embryo chorioallantoic membrane (CAM). The antibody marked the endothelium of blood and lymphatic vessels starting from day 8 of incubation and the cytoplasm of the allantoic epithelial cells. The application of this antibody may be useful for quantifying neovascularization in response to various angiogenic stimuli applied to the CAM.
