Effect of dietary calcium and cholic acid on the proliferative indices of murine colonic epithelium.


The effect of dietary calcium on the cholic acid-induced colon cell proliferative response was investigated with C57BL/6J mice. The control diets were formulated on the basis of the AIN-76 diet with the levels of calcium set at 0.1, 0.5 or 1.0% by weight and the ratio of Ca:P at approximately 1:1. Cholic acid was added at 0.1% and 0.25% by weight. The… (More)
