An immunocytochemical study of the distribution of lysozyme, a1-antitrypsin and a1-antichymotrypsin in the normal and pathological gall bladder

We have studied the distribution of lysozyme (Ly), a1-antitrypsin (a1AT) and a1-antichymotrypsin (a1AChy) in the normal, chronically inflamed and neoplastic gall bladder mucosa using the peroxidase-anti-peroxidase (PAP) method. Ly was absent from the normal mucosa but it was found only in areas of glandular metaplasia of true antral type and in crypts of… CONTINUE READING
