Figure 5 Micrograph of liver sections staining with immunohistochemistry for α-smooth muscle actin (α-SMA) can be visualized by the brown color: (a) the control group showing a limited to the wall of the central vein expression of α-SMA; (b) thioacetamide (TAA) group showing intense immunopositive reaction of α-SMA in a fibrous band connecting between portal and central areas as brown color; (c) P. granatum group showing normal expression of α-SMA positive staining; (d) TAA and slymarin showing reduction in the areas of α-SMA reaction around the central vein; (e) TAA and P. granatum (100 mg/kg) showing moderate α-SMA reaction around the central vein; and (f) TAA and P. granatum (200 mg/kg) showing minimal α-SMA reaction around the central vein (α-smooth muscle actin, ×400).
