Results of the apoptosis and necrosis staining of PAM whether or not exposed to 0.025 μg/mL of DON. The results represent the average percentage of cells showing apoptosis or necrosis and their standard deviation. Normal cells are negative for both EMA and caspase-3, necrotic cells are positive for EMA but negative for caspase-3, apoptotic cells are always positive for caspase-3 but can be EMA positive (late apoptosis) or negative (early apoptosis).
