osteoclast staining

I needed to ask for a osteoclast staining protocol other than TRAP.  My samples are decalcified and paraffinized mandibular alveols.
I was wondering if there is a known osteoclastic marker that makes the western blot analysis a feasible option.
I would love to get all the suggestions and helps.
