Proliferative activity of ectopic bone tissue induced by transitional epithelium of the urinary bladder in guinea pigs
Proliferative activity of osteogenic cells of ectopic bone induced by transitional epithelium, and in a stationary state, was studied in guinea pigs by autoradiography. On the side of the bone surface facing the inducing layer and foci of ectopic hematopoiesis, proliferative activity was higher than on the side facing the surrounding connective tissue. Osteoblasts remain only 44 h on the bone surface. Inducing epithelium proliferates more intensively than the noninducing, differentiated epithelium.
