Effect of α-fodrin expression on histopathologic analysis of NOD mice. Effect of α-fodrin expression on histopathologic analysis in the (a) 1 μg/dose α-fodrin group, (b) 10 μg/dose α-fodrin group, (c) PBS group, and (d) Glutathione transferase group. Immunohistochemical analysis of salivary gland sections from NOD mice using polyclonal antibodies against α-fodrin. Epithelial duct cells were intensely stained, especially within the inflammatory lesions. Immunoreactivity was decreased in the salivary glands of α-fodrin-administrated groups ((a) and (b)).
