[Zbrafish] zn-5 and zn-8 antibodies

Hi Jill,

My understanding has always been that zn-5 and zn-8 came out of 
different wells in the same hybridoma screen (done by Bill 
Trevarrow), and thus likely represent two different isolates of the 
same clone (which would thus recognize the same epitope).  Dave 
Fashena worked on DM-GRASP and these antibodies for his PhD thesis. I 
believe that they work on Western, I forget if you have to use 
nonreducing conditions.

I hope that Dave or Bill can correct or amplify.
