Figure 8 : Immunodetection of progesterone and estrogen β receptors of female (a,b) and male (c,d)
mammary gland sections.

(a): A positive reaction for progesterone receptor in some ductal cells (arrows) is seen. [Progesterone
receptor immunostaining, X400. Bar, 100μm].
(b): A tense positive reaction for Estrogen β receptor in most of ductal cells (arrows) is seen. [Estrogen β
receptor immunostaining, X400. Bar, 100μm].
(c): A patchy distributed pattern for progesterone receptor positive reaction in some ductal epithelial
cells (arrow), in luminal secretion (arrow head) and in fibroblastic stromal cells (f) is noticed.
[Progesterone receptor immunostaining, X400. Bar, 100μm].
(d): A negative reaction for estrogen β receptor immunostaining in the ductal epithelium (d) a weak
positive in reaction in periductal stroma (f) is detected. [Estrogen β receptor immunostaining, X1000. Bar,
20μm].
