In humans, eccrine sweat glands play important roles in regulating body temperature.[1],[2] Secretory coils and ducts are two components of eccrine sweat glands and have different structures and functions.[1] Eccrine sweat glands are innervated mainly by terminal nerve fibers, which are expressed at low levels.[1],[3] Therefore, it is difficult to detect these peripheral nerve fibers by standard histochemical techniques, and signal amplification is required.[1],[4] The tyramide signal amplification (TSA) system is a technique used to amplify weak signals and can be easily integrated into standard immunofluorescence (IF) protocols.[3],[5],[6],[7],[8] In this study, we combine standard IF with TSA to characterize weakly expressed nerve fiber antigens.
