Immunolocalization of fibroblast growth factor receptor-3 (FGFR3) in osteophyte (a) and fetal growth plate (b). a Cellular staining for FGFR3 in the deep zone of osteophytes (representative picture, ×312.5; arrow shows positively stained chondrocyte). b Cellular staining for FGFR3 in proliferating, pre-, and hypertrophic chondrocytes (×100, arrowhead shows positively stained hypertrophic chondrocyte). c Negative control for FGFR3 using a fetal sample corresponding to b
Mostly, samples with some single positively stained cells were seen
(Fig. 3 a; Table 1 ). .
The intensity of immunostaining decreased from hypertrophic to
maturing, proliferating, and resting (no stain) chondrocytes
(Fig. 3 b; Table 2 ).
However, one specimen with an area of intense staining for collagen
type X in the deepest layer and with collagen type I and
II showed a relatively intense staining for FGFR3 (see Fig. 3
