Often the problem of lack of antibody staining of whole cells or
fixed sections is one of antibody penetration, especially with
aldehyde fixation. I'd try fixation with cold methanol at -20 C
instead of aldehydes, or using a detergent such as 0.2% Triton x-100
after fixation in a low concentration (2% paraformaldehyde or 0.6%
glutaraldehyde) of the aldehyde fixative. See Harlow and Lane:
Antibodies A Laboratory Manual (CSH lab press).
Hope this helps.
