Lectin and anti-galectin-3 double labeling histochemistry, in healthy breast and fibroadenoma samples. Weak staining with anti-galectin-3 was observed in healthy samples (A). Artocarpus integrifolia lectin recognizes ducts and stroma in healthy breast samples (B1). Arachis hypogaea recognizes ducts and stroma in healthy samples (C1). Amaranthus leucocarpus recognizes ducts and stroma in healthy breast samples (D1). In fibroadenoma, anti-galectin-3 recognizes ducts and stroma (B2) (C2) (D2). White arrow indicates ducts site of lectin or antibody binding. Yellow arrow indicates stroma site of lectin or antibody binding. Micrographs 10X.
