||"This was found after autoradiography of [3H] pulse-labelled cells, which were classified according to length and in which the fraction of radioactive cells was scored for each length class."
||"Values for the coefficient of variation(CV) of the size (length) at initiation were on the order of 20% (Fig.31)(for details, consult primary sources)...Thus, if cell division is taken as a starting point, size at initiation of DNA replication is more accurately determined than age.
