DNA synthesis was detected in the squamous outer epithelial cells emigrating from the edge (arrowheads) but not in the columnar outer epithelial cells in the central part of the fragment (arrows). A - Mayer's hematoxylin and eosin stain. B and C - immunohistochemical detection of BrdU-labeled nuclei in an adjacent section of A with anti-BrdU monoclonal antibody and FITC- conjugated second antibody. B - phase contrast microscopy. C - fluorescent microscopy. Scale bar - 200 μm.
