Localization of GSII and CDX2 in digestive organs of FVB-CA-AhR and wild-type mice. (a-h) Lectin histochemistry for GSII and (i-k) immunohistochemistry for CDX2. (a) Proper gastric gland of a 16 wk. male examined by lectin histochemistry. (b) Squared area in panel a. (c) Squared area in panel a. Arrows denote GSII+ mucous neck cells. (d) The base of the glands in the proper gastric gland in another 16 wk. male. Arrows denote GSII+ chief cells. (e) The jejunum of a 16 wk. male examined by lectin histochemistry. Inset shows goblet cells. (f) The liver of a 16 wk. male examined by lectin histochemistry. Asterisk denotes interlobular bile duct. (g) The pancreas of a 16 wk. male examined by lectin histochemistry. Asterisk denotes intercalated duct. (h) The proper gastric gland of a 28 wk. male examined by lectin histochemistry. Inset displays EM cysts. (i) The jejunum of a 33 wk. female. (j) The proper gastric gland including IM cysts in a 33 wk. female. (k) EM cysts in a 33 wk. female. CA-AhR: FVB-CA-AhR; WT: wild-type; Bars denote 500 μm (a and h), 100 μm (e, i-k), 50 μm (b), and 20 μm (c, d, f, g, and insets)
