Proliferation kinetics of mouse tongue epithelium under normal conditions and following single dose irradiation.

Abstract

Epithelial proliferation in the ventral surface of mouse tongue follows a pronounced circadian rhythm with a peak in mitotic activity at 10.00 a.m., preceded by a wave of DNA synthesis 8 h earlier. Nearly all cells (85%) pass through G2 and mitosis immediately after the S-phase; they subsequently divide again, usually after 2 or 3 days, indicating cohorts… (More)
