Figure 1 Representative bilateral paraspinal muscle immunohistological images of laminin 2 alpha (red), fast myosin skeletal heavy chain (green), and DAPI (blue) from individuals with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis and control individuals. The cross-sectional area is surrounded by laminin border. Muscle fiber type II can be stained with green while fiber type I cannot. Myonuclei were determined by DAPI+ cells within the laminin border. Scale bar=100 μm.
