Method P.107 3rd paragraph: "The percentage of labeled peritubular cells during [3H]thymidine treatment was always higher than the percentage of labeled Leydig cells (Table 1). After the linear regression analysis and arcsin transformation (hypotheses of linearity and regression not rejected), it could be calculated that 126 days (95 % confidence interval, 85 to 257 days) would pass before all cells had become labeled."
Comments Abstract: "The calculated turnover time for the peritubular cells was 85 to 257 days." P.109 4th paragraph: "The turnover time of peritubular cells ranges from 85 to 257 days, which was more rapid than the turnover time of Leydig cells."
