Representative immunohistochemical staining for nitrotyrosine in donor articular cartilage. Cartilage sections were immunostained using an anti-nitrotyrosine antibody. In donor-matched pairs of degenerative and intact regions from same cartilage explants (67-year-old donor), positive immunostaining for nitrotyrosine was observed in chondrocytes and in the cartilage matrix in degenerated regions, whereas the intact region from same cartilage sample showed no positive staining for nitrotyrosine. Original magnification: 40×.
