The identification and characterization of esophageal stem cells are critical to our understanding of the biology of the esophageal epithelium in health and disease. However, the proliferative compartment within the mouse esophageal epithelium remains poorly characterized. Here, we report that the basal cells of the mouse esophagus can be separated into(More)
Proliferation in mouse oesophageal epithelial cells is confined to the basal layer of the epithelium. Within this population, it is possible to discriminate different sub-populations using a combination of cell kinetic studies and functional assays. In particular, it is possible to distinguish basal epithelial cells, which are post-mitotic and destined to(More)
