From: Immunohistochemical localization of integrin alpha V beta 3 and osteopontin suggests that they do not interact during embryo implantation in ruminants

Figure 6

Immunohistochemistry for detection of osteopontin in endometrial tissue collected from cyclic (A, day 13) and pregnant (B, day 13) sheep. Moderate to strong apical cell reactivity to osteopontin antibodies (shown in red) was detected on glands (G), luminal epithelium (LE) and extraembryonic membranes (arrow). No reactivity was observed on trophoblast (T). A representative control section treated with rabbit IgG substituted for primary antibody is shown in C. Bar = 50 μm.
