Lectin and anti-galectin-3 histochemistry in healthy breast and fibroadenoma samples. Amaranthus leucocarpus recognizes ducts in healthy breast samples (A1): in fibroadenoma, Amaranthus leucocarpus lectin recognizes ducts and stroma cells (A2). Artocarpus integrifolia lectin recognizes ducts in healthy (B1) and fibroadenoma samples (B2). Arachis hypogaea recognizes ducts in healthy (C1) and in fibroadenoma samples (C2). Anti-galectin-3 antibody depicts weak staining in ducts of healthy samples (D1); in fibroadenoma, the antibody recognizes ducts and stroma cells (D2) Arrows indicate the lectin and antibody binding sites. Black arrow indicates ducts site of lectin or antibody binding. Yellow arrow indicates stroma site of lectin or antibody binding. Micrographs are in 10X.
