Some of the earliest changes that have been detected following the stimulation of quiescent cells have been changes in the membrane permeability and in the transport of nutrients1,2. There is, futhermore, increasing evidence that the growth of some animal cells may be regulated, at least in part, by the availability of essencial nutrients3.
