Effect of pregnancy stage on the median number of rows of subepithelial (SE) stromal cells showing strong reactivity to anti-αVβ3 antibody. Acetone fixed cyrostat cross sections from three cows each at days 16, 18, 21, 24 and 30 of pregnancy were used. The number of rows of positively stained SE stromal cells (score ≥ 4) underlying the intercaruncular luminal epithelium were counted by twoindependent observers and analyzed to determine if there was an effect ofstage of pregnancy. * indicates the median was significantly different fromother medians (P < 0.05).
