Expression patterns of Tiam1 and OPN in breast cancer-associated fibroblasts, correlated with invasiveness. Representative sections of non-invasive (DCIS) and invasive breast cancers showing tumor cells (T) with interspersed stroma (S), stained with hematoxylin and eosin (H&E), Tiam1 antibody, or OPN antibody as indicated. a and b White arrows indicate fibroblast nuclei in stroma adjacent to tumor cells. c and f Green arrows indicate fibroblasts with detectable overexpression of indicated protein. d and e Red arrows indicate fibroblasts without overexpression of indicated protein. All images taken at 40× magnification, scale bar indicates 100 μM
