Figure 6 : Light microscopy images of serial sections of intact hind paws.

The boxed area in A and B is magnified in C and D, and the boxed area in C and D is magnified in E and F respectively. Sagittal sections (8μm) stained with hematoxylin and eosin (A,C,E) or hematoxylin, safranin-O and fast green (B,D,F). Various regions of the foot can be identified (A,B) including the distal tip of the digit, the dorsal and plantar surfaces of the phalanges, the footpads, the plantar metatarsal skin and the heel. Note the well-preserved tissue morphology and integrity and the Meissner-like corpuscles in the dermal papillae of the footpads.
