Expression of GHS-R in neurofibromas and other structures. Legend: (a − e) Neurofibromas expressing GHS-R. Most spindle cells showed nuclear expression, but some also presented cytoplasmic GHS-R expression. (200×); (c) Asterisks show GHS-R expression in tumor endothelial cells (nucleus and cytoplasm). Black asterisks: transversal cut of blood vessels. Blue asterisk: longitudinal cut of a blood vessel; (e) Asterisks show expression of GHS-R in mast cells. f GHS-R expression in epidermis, hair follicles, and sebaceous glands (100×). g GHS-R expression in nerve fascicle (400×); (h) GHS-R expression in sweat glands (200×)
