Figure 2: Immunohistochemical staining of a-smooth muscle actin (a-SMA) showing activated hepatic stellate cells during the progression of N'- Nitrosodimethyl amine (NDMA)-induced hepatic fibrosis in rats. (a) Control liver (×100) demonstrates absence of α-SMA staining and, (b) NDMA treatment day 21 (×100) exhibiting significant staining of α-SMA with enormous number of activated stellate cells in fibrotic zone
