These studies were done with CD2F1 adult mice that had been standardized to 12 hours of light alternating with 12 hours of darkness to determine what effect a 24-hour fast had on circadian rhythms in DNA synthesis of 10 different regions of the gut, as well as in the pancreas, liver, thymus, spleen, bone marrow, lung and testis. The mitotic index of the corneal epithelium also was studied. The overall responses varied rather dramatically. For example, in the different regions of the gut the… CONTINUE READING
