Radioautographic evidence for slow astrocyte turnover and modest oligodendrocyte production in the corpus callosum of adult mice infused with 3H-thymidine.

Abstract

To find out whether glial cells proliferate in the corpus callosum of adult mice, two series of experiments were carried out. The first one made use of 9-month-old "aged" male mice. Some of them were given 3H-thymidine as a 2-hour pulse to examine which cells became labeled and, therefore, had the ability to divide. Others were sacrificed after a continuous… (More)
