Immunostaining for AQP5 in tissues of the carcinoma and accompanying normal mucosa. Tissue sections were immunostained with the anti-AQP5 antibody. The portions stained with brown colors indicate the expression of AQP5. Representative pictures obtained from three independent experiments are shown. Original magnification ×10 (left panels) and ×40 (right panels). Tissues were obtained from patients No. 2 (ah) and No. 11 (i, j) in Table 1. No staining in normal tissues (a, b) and intestinal metaplasia (c, d). Strong staining in intestinal type of adenocarcinoma (e, f) but no staining in the presence of the blocking peptide (g, h). In (f), a white asterisk shows the apical side of cells and a black asterisk shows the basal side of cells. No staining in diffuse type of adenocarcinoma (i, j). Scale bars 50 μm (black color aj) and 10 μm (red color f)
