The Role of Intrinsic Pathway in Apoptosis Activation and Progression in Peyronie’s Disease
Caspase 3 immunostaining in plaque from a patient with Peyronie’s disease ((a) and (b)) and in control tissue (c); magnification is 20x for all. Scale bar = 100 μm. (a) Arrowheads: caspase 3 immunostaining in fibrous tissue; arrow: caspase 3 immunostaining in a metaplastic bone osteocyte. (b) Arrows: haversian canals; arrowhead: a primary ossification center.
