Immunoreactivity of MFG-E8 in normal pancreas (A + B) and chronic pancreatitis (C - F). In normal pancreatic tissue samples, immunostaining of MFG-E8 was only moderately present in the ducal and centroacinar cells (A + B). In chronic pancreatitis, MFG-E8 showed increased immunoreactivity in tubular complexes (C - F).
