In situ hybridization analyses of A2M mRNA in oviducts of DES-treated and control chicks. In situ hybridization with cross-sections of the infundibulum, magnum, isthmus, and shell gland of the chicken oviduct with antisense or sense chicken A2M cRNA probes revealed abundant expression of A2M mRNA only in glandular epithelium (GE) of isthmus and lower expression in GE of the magnum of chick oviducts treated with DES. Legend: LE, luminal epithelium; GE, glandular epithelium; Scale bar represents 200 μm (the first horizontal panels) and 50 μm (the second horizontal panels).
