Table 3 Immunohistochemical findings determining localization and intensity of immunostaining intensity for inhibin-α, -βA,- βB, -βC and -βE subunits in human endometrium across the normal menstrual cycle

From: Evidence of inhibin/activin subunit betaC and betaE synthesis in normal human endometrial tissue

  Inhibin subunits Proliferative phase Early secretory phase Late secretory phase
Glandular epithelium α ± + ++
  βA + + ++
  βB + + ++
  βC + + +
  βE + + ++
Stromal cells α - + ++
  βA - + ++
  βB - + ++
  βC + + +
  βE - + ++
  1. - = no staining; +/- = minimal staining + = positive staining; ++ = intense staining.
