Immunohistochemical staining of CD22 demonstrates expression in AAA tissue associated lymphocytes. Immunohistochemical staining using a commercially available specific antibody against CD22 was performed on formalin-fixed paraffin embedded tissue sections of non-aneurysmal abdominal aorta (A) and AAA (B, C, D). Negative control staining with non-immune serum showed no staining (data not shown). Images are centered on lymphocytes (small round cells with sparse cytoplasm) primarily seen in the adventitial layer. The adjacent media is indicated with an asterisk. Positive staining appears reddish-brown with hematoxylin counterstaining in blue.
