Figure 1: CCL20 is present in human atherosclerotic lesions, where it colocalizes with plasmin and dendritic cells. (a) Negative control. Sections of human atherosclerotic abdominal aorta specimens were stained with control antibodies and visualized with double immunostaining using AP- and HRP-conjugated secondary antibodies and FastRed (pink) and DAB (brown) substrates. Original magnification is ×100. (b) Plasmin colocalizes with dendritic cells. Sections of human atherosclerotic abdominal aorta specimens were stained with antibodies against plasmin (AEC, red) and dendritic cell marker S100 (DAB, brown). Original magnifications ×200 and ×400. (c) CCL20 colocalizes with dendritic cells. Sections of human atherosclerotic abdominal aorta specimens were stained with antibodies against CCL20 (DAB, brown) and dendritic cell marker S100 (FastRed, pink). Original magnifications are ×100, ×200, and ×400. (d) Plasmin colocalizes with CCL20. Sections of human atherosclerotic abdominal aorta specimens were stained with antibodies against plasmin (FastRed, pink) and CCL20 (DAB, brown). Original magnifications are ×200 and ×400.
