Refeeding of mice after fasting stimulates cell renewal in the gall bladder epithelium
- 11 Downloads
The effect of refeeding of mice after a fasting period on the uptake of 3H-thymidine and on mitotic activity in the gall bladder epithelium was studied by histoautoradiography. A significant increase in both DNA synthesis and mitotic activity was observed after 12 h of refeeding.
