In eccrine sweat glands, K7 is selectively expressed in secretory cells, S100P is specifically expressed in inner layer cells of ducts, and K14 is expressed in myoepithelial cells of secretory coils and ducts, so we can differentiate secretory coils from ducts according to the differential localization of K7, S100P, and K14.[11],[12],[13] IF double staining shows that PGP 9.5, TH, and VIP predominantly surround secretory coils and sparsely surround sweat ducts, suggesting that the innervation of secretory coils and ducts are not equal.
