2004) reported that the largest numbers of ghrelin-positive cells were located at the base of lobuli
of the proventriculus gland, along villi of the intestines and in crypts of the duodenum, while lower numbers of ghrelin-immunostained cells were located in crypts of jejunum and ileum and only few ghrelin-immunostained cells were detected at the base of crypts of the large intestine.
Interestingly, in an immunohistochemical study on bcl-2, normal ducts or lobuli
showed positive epithelial staining with bcl-2, the staining was decreased or absent in apocrine metaplasia foci .
68): More gibbous than midlobe, subproximally with well marked humeral tubercles and medial boulder-shaped protuberance; the very posterior sector depressed, flat, with hardly marked posthumeral lobuli
, posterior margin straight.
Nevertheless, these findings were reasonable findings with regard to the expansive appearance of the lobuli
, which may finally lead to a nodular lobular pattern.
