A-B. Sections from the dorsal skin of the Ovx, and the Ovx+YCJ groups, following treatment for 14 days. Sections were immunostained with anti-ER-α antibody. The yellow arrows indicate wound areas. Immunoreactivity is detected in keratinocytes, fibroblasts, sebaceous gland (red box), and hair follicle (green box). A = Ovx group; B = Ovx+YCJ group; e = epidermis; d = dermis; h = hypodermis. (4x). C-F. Higher magnification of B. C = non-immunoreactive hair follicles. (x40). D = Strong immunostaining of the hair follicle seen in the green box in B. (x20). E = Strong immunostaining of the sebaceous gland (S) seen in the red box in B. (x40). F = Strong immunostaining of keratinocytes (k) and fibroblasts (f) seen in the yellow box in B. (x40).
