The Role of Intrinsic Pathway in Apoptosis Activation and Progression in Peyronie’s Disease
Caspase 9 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) Arrows: caspase 9 immunostaining in fibrous cells from PD plaques (Figure 5(a), arrows) and in osteocytes (arrow). (b) Arrowheads: caspase 9 immunostaining in osteoblasts of a primary ossification centers.
