  • Two sets of mice were examined in this study. Set 1 (n=35) received 1 daily of injection of BrdU for 12 consecutive days and five mice were killed and examined at each of the seven different time-points listed. The GFP-expressing transgenic mice of Set 2 received only two injections of BrdU, 6 hours apart, and were perfused 24 hours later.
