Hematopoiesis in rats after destruction of the posterior hypothalamic nuclei assessed by bone marrow total cell count
- 22 Downloads
The effect of bilateral electrocoagulation of nuclei of the mammillary body and the posterior hypothalamic nucleus on the, total cell count in the bone marrow was studied in rats. Destruction of the posterior hypothalamic nuclei led to inhibition of erythropoiesis. The number of mitoses and the total number of erythroid cells were reduced. Granulocytopoiesis, however, was stimulated. Proliferative activity and the total number of immature granulocytes in the bone marrow of the rats were increased.
