Lack of MAL protein expression in colorectal carcinomas. Positive cytoplasmic staining of MAL was found in kidney tubuli (A), and no staining was observed in heart muscle (B), in agreement with earlier reports [30]. The epithelial cells of colorectal carcinomas were MAL negative (C, D), whereas in normal colon tissue, cytoplasmic expression of MAL was found in both epithelia and connective tissue (E, F). All images were captured using the 40× lens (400× magnification).
