Expression of α6 integrin subunit and uPAR in specimens from pancreatic cancer patients. Tissue samples fixed in 10% formalin and embedded in paraffin were stained using the labeled streptavidin biotin method and specific antibodies as described in Materials and Methods. (A) Strong expression of the α6 integrin subunit in a specimen from ductal adenocarcinoma of pancreas. Magnification: ×200. (B) Strong expression of the uPAR in a specimen from ductal adenocarcinoma of pancreas. Magnification: ×200. (C) Weak expression of the α6 integrin subunit in a specimen from non-cancerous region of pancreas. Magnification: ×200. (D) The expression of uPAR was absent in a specimen from non-cancerous region of pancreas. Magnification: ×200.
