Method Raman spectra of cells and nuclei from cultures in the plateau (nonproliferating) and exponential (proliferating) phases of growth were measured and show that Raman spectroscopy can monitor changes due to cell proliferation. Value is the weighted arithmetic mean of 15 measurements in table
Comments In the G2 portion of the cell cycle the cell is expected to reach its largest size. Range is standard deviation
