OBJECTIVE To prove the feasibility of detecting menstrual blood as well as its cellular localization with rabbit-anti-human matrix metalloproteinase-11 (MMP-11) polyclonal antibody. METHODS MMP-11 in menstrual blood, peripheral blood, vaginal liquid, aged menstrual bloodstain, and endometrium sections were assayed with SAP immunohistochemistry. RESULTS MMP-11 was found only in menstrual samples within stroma and epithelium cells. CONCLUSION MMP-11 polyclonal antibody may be applied in the… CONTINUE READING
