Sample

A 4-mm punch biopsy was acquired from a healthy Caucasian subject, fixed and vertically sectioned into 200-micron-thick sections.

Biomarkers

Sections were stained with the plant lectin, Ulex europeaous conjugated to FITC (yellow). This lectin binds to l-fucose moieties, a carbohydrate abundant in human blood vessels.

Acquisition

This image was captured using laser scanning confocal microscopy at 200X magnification and is a projection of 56 two-micron optical sections.
