Figure 1

Photomicrographs showing TRPV1-IR nerve fibers in TP cervix (a-c) and a TRPV1-IR nerve fascicle in NP corpus (d). Box plots show the distribution of cervical TRPV1-IR nerve fibers. TRPV1-IR nerve fibers were observed subepithelially (a, arrows) and in the stroma (b, arrow) as well as around blood vessels (c, arrows). Scale bars = 50 μm. TRPV1-IR nerve fibers did not differ significantly between the groups either when presented as total count of positive nerve fibers (e) or as TRPV1 positive nerve fibers/mm2 (f)
