(7,18) Immunohistochemically, the chief cells are positive for neuroendocrine markers, tyrosine hydroxylase, and GATA3, whilst the surrounding sustentacular cells express S100 and GFAP (glial fibrillary acidic protein).

In stomach tissue, no marked damage but intensive blue staining was observed, indicating migration of gastric chief cells to the outer layer of the stomach lining, in only control and metoclopramide groups but not in the RVX-treated groups (Figure 3(a)).
The glandular part had the gastric glands, which could be divided to two layers in the HE stain: the luminal layer stained red as the acidophilic parietal cells were predominant, and the basal layer stained blue as the basophilic chief cells were predominant.
Chief cells with basal nuclei and clear cytoplasm but indefinite cellular outlines are observed.
