Light microscope autoradiography was utilized to investigate the separate proliferative activities of the basal and glandular cell types during androgen-mediated restoration of the ventral prostatic epithelium in castrated rats. Our objective was to determine whether the proliferative population of the prostatic epithelium is restricted to the basal cell subtype under these experimental conditions. In the intact animal, substantial numbers of basal as well as glandular cells were found to be… CONTINUE READING
