Human Lactoferrin Stimulates Thymidine Incorporation into DNA of Rat Crypt Cells


Abstract: In a search for dietary factors that might stimulate enterocyte proliferation, we developed an assay for thymidine incorporation into DNA using harvested crypt cells from mature rat small intestine. Human colostrum stimulated a significant increase in thymidine incorporation into rat crypt cell DNA during a 60-min period of incubation. When the… (More)
