Figure 3 CNP expression in gastric tissues in normal and diabetic rats. A-D: CNP expression in gastric smooth muscle in normal and diabetic rats. In negative controls CNP was not expressed in normal and diabetic rats (A, B) and the CNP immunopositive brown granules were mainly expressed in gastric muscle layers of normal and diabetic rats (C, D); E: Summary of CNP expression in normal and diabetic rats. The staining indexes were not significantly different between normal and diabetic rats (E, n = 8, P > 0.05). Scale bars = 80 &mgr;m (A), 20 &mgr;m (B-D).
