Elastic fibres have been revealed by both elastin immunostaining and conventional histological orcein-staining in the intervertebral discs of the bovine tail.

In the transitional region between nucleus and annulus, the orientation of the elastic fibres changes, producing a criss-cross pattern. ...Expand abstract
