Figure 2 Representative bilateral paraspinal muscle immunohistological images of Pax7 (red), laminin (green), fast myosin skeletal heavy chain (green), and DAPI (blue) from individuals with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis and control individuals. Muscle fiber type II can be stained with green while fiber type I cannot. Satellite cells were identified by Pax7+/DAPI+ cells within the laminin border. White arrows denote satellite cells (Pax 7+/DAPI+). Scale bar=100 μm.
