Examples of α-DG immunohistochemical staining in human colon samples. (A) Normal colonic mucosa. Note the intense cytoplasmic immunopositivity of caliciform cells of the cryptes (× 20) and the positive staining of the stroma likely due its muscolar fraction, which served as positive control. (B) Normal colonic mucosa. Note the strongest staining on the basis of cells and the reinforcement of basal membrane (arrows) (× 40. (C) A well differentiated NAS adenocarcinoma displaying a diffuse staining for α-DG (× 200). (D) A poorly differentiated NAS adenocarcinoma displaying an intense cytoplasmic staining for α-DG (× 400). (E and F) A mucinous poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma displaying a clear diffuse cytoplasmic staining for α-DG (× 200 and × 550).
