Isolation and Characterization of Adhesive Secretion from Cuvierian Tubules of Sea Cucumber Holothuria forskåli (Echinodermata: Holothuroidea)

Figure 7

Immunohistological identification of adhesive protein in sections of Cuvierian tubules. (a, b) Sections of Cuvierian tubules stained with antibody against adhesive protein (PoAb-Ctub; 1 : 100 dilution (a) and counterstained with DAPI (b)). (c, d) Sections of Cuvierian tubules stained with preimmune serum (1 : 100; (c)) and counterstained with DAPI (d). Cy3-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG was used as secondary antibody. m: mesothelium.
