The fine structure of growing and non-growing whole glia cell preparations.


Human glia cells become blocked in G1 if starved of serum. The characteristics of the GI blocked state are flattening on the substrate, and absence of cell translocation, ruffling and macropinocytosis. Re-entry into the cell cycle, as a result of growth factor stimulation, is accompained and even preceded by the return of this cellular locomotion. We have… (More)
