Thus, we immunohistochemically examined the expression of AQP1 and AQP3 in neck skin samples to discuss their forensic applicability to determination of the wound vitality. Skin samples were obtained from 56 neck compression cases (hanging, 35 cases; strangulation, 21 cases). The intact skin from the same… CONTINUE READING
