Immunohistochemical study of phosphorylated H2AX: Phosphorylated H2AX (γ-H2AX) was stained by using mouse monoclonal anti-phospho-H2AX antibody (clone JBW301, 4 μg/mL, Merck Milipore, Darmstadt, Germany) as a primary antibody. Paraffin sections were incubated with the primary antibodies overnight at room temperature. The sections were next incubated with fluorescent secondary antibody (1:400 Alexa 488-labeled goat anti-mouse IgG (Molecular Probes Inc., Eugene, Oregon, USA) for 3 h at room temperature. Finally, the nuclei were stained by 4'-6-diamidino-2-phenylindole (DAPI) and the sections were examined with a fluorescence microscope (LX70, Olympus, Tokyo, Japan) ora laser scanning confocal microscope (Fluoview FV1000-D, Olympus). For the negative control, we omitted the primary antibody and treated with the secondary antibody according to the procedure.
