63 monoxygenase, calponin
and LIM Myosin IF NM 205254 7.
The phenotype of the isolated cells was checked with phase contract microscopy and immunofluorescence (pancytokeratins [AE] 1/AE3 for UCs and smooth muscle actin [SMA] and calponin
for BSCs and SMCs).
The participation of calponin
in the cross talk between 20-hydroxyecdysone and juvenile hormone signaling pathways by phosphorylation variation.
Immunohistochemical stains for E-cadherin, myoepithelial cells (p63, calponin
, and smooth muscle myosin), lymphatic endothelial cells (D2-40 and CD31), and estrogen and progesterone receptor proteins were prepared following standard immunoperoxidase protocols.
5) The myoepithelial lesions are immunoreactive with dark-brown staining for alpha-smooth muscle actin, calponin
, and myosin.
However, these do not stain for smooth muscle actin and calponin
CD99 showed weak cytoplasmic positivity, and smooth muscle actin (SMA), desmin, synaptophysin, chromogranin, S100 protein, cytokeratin AEl/AE3, CD45, CD34, CD117, calretinin, calponin
,13-catenin, epithelial membrane antigen (EMA), and Cam5.
Immunolocalization of the smooth muscle-specific protein calponin
in complex and mixed tumors of the mammary gland of the dog: assessment of the morphogenetic role of the myoepithelium.
In myoepithelioma, tumor cells stain positive for S-100 protein, alpha-SMA, muscle-specific actin, vimentin, pankeratin, cytokeratin 7, cytokeratin 14, GFAP, EMA, and calponin
A recent study demonstrated that calponin
was present in the olfactory fibroblast meningeal cells but not in the adult OECs , thus strengthening the argument that OECs can form myelin.
Transgelin 2, an actin cross-linking/gelling protein, belongs to the calponin
family (Shapland et al.
6,7) The myoepithelial component is highlighted by p63, smooth muscle myosin heavy chains, CK5, CD10, calponin
, actin, and S100.
