Range Table - link cells produced/crypt or gland/hour
Organism Rodent
Reference Nicholas A. Wright, Malcolm Alison, The biology of epithelial cell populations, Volume 1 Clarendon Press, Oxford, 1984 p.143 table 3.5
Method The metaphase arrest method with vincristine using microdissection
Comments "...Table 3.5, which gives a selection of cell production rates in the rat and mouse gastrointestinal tract shows that the relative standard errors of the estimates are quite small, of the order of 10 percent or less in most cases, and this gives the measurement a considerable degree of discrimination in statistical tests..."
