Cell proliferation and DNA-synthesis in the external granular layer of the postnatal rat cerebellum: a quantitative study.

The external granular layer (EGL) of the rat cerebellum can be subdivided into two morphologically distinct zones, the outer of which consists of proliferating cells, while the inner has generally been considered to contain post-mitotic cells exclusively. Two criteria, the detection of mitotic figures and the observation of nuclei labelled shortly after an… CONTINUE READING
