Anti-ovarian vessels antibodies, pseudomonas aeruginosa, immunohistochemical


Cyclical angiogenesis in the ovary is a unique process supporting normal folliculogenesis as well as lute genesis. In this report we investigated the reactivity of rabbit anti pseudomonas aeruginosa antisera with ovarian blood vessels. Tissues stained with anti-sera were immunohistochemically visualized using biotinylated anti rabbit immunoglobulin and peroxidase conjugated streptavidin. Positive staining sites depend on anti-stain type, however, staining was observed in endothelial cell and tunica adventitia in most cases.On the other hand, corpus luteum blood vessels showed a positive staining pattern as well. We conclude from this study that a peculiar staining pattern was seen in ovarian blood vessels stained with rabbit anti-pseudomonas aeruginosa hyper immune sera, the importance of this reactivity need further investigation.
