Mice housed in groups of 4-6 exhibit a diurnal surge in their platelet count.

Abstract

The number of circulating platelets in humans exhibits diurnal rhythmicity, with lowest numbers often recorded in the morning. It has been demonstrated that a similar diurnal rhythmicity in the platelet count exists in mice. In this brief communication, it is reported that husbandry conditions affect the diurnal rhythm of platelet abundance in mice. The… (More)
