Table 1 New cell entry is comparable in circumvallate and fungiform taste buds

From: Differential expression of a BMP4 reporter allele in anterior fungiform versus posterior circumvallate taste buds of mice

Time post-BrdU injection Number of circumvallate taste bud profiles (number of mice) Number of circumvallte taste bud profiles with BrdU-IR cells Mean number of BrdU-IR cells per taste bud profile +/- SEM (for all cvp taste buds) Number of fungiform taste bud profiles (number of mice) Number of fungiform taste bud profiles with BrdU-IR cells Mean number of BrdU-IR cells per taste bud profile +/- SEM (for all ffp taste buds)
24 h 37(3) 225 0.72 +/- 0.04 52 (3) 28 0.66 +/- 0.1
48 h 314(3) 230 0.89 +/- 0.05 52 (3) 30 0.67 +/- 0.1
72 h 245 (3) 139 0.66 +/- 0.09 61 (3) 38 0.66 +/- 0.09
  1. The number of BrdU-IR cells inside taste buds per taste bud profile at 24, 48, and 72 hours post-injection (mean +/- standard error, n = 3 mice for each time point). There is no statistical difference between the number of new cells at any time point between the circumvallate and fungiform taste buds (p > 0.05 by t test for each time point post BrdU injection).
