Table 2 Fgf2 exon 3 -/- mice show a decrease in proliferative cell populations

From: Decrease in excitatory neurons, astrocytes and proliferating progenitors in the cerebral cortex of mice lacking exon 3 from the Fgf2 gene

  Cell Number  
  Wild type Fgf2 -/- % of control
Total BrdU+ cell (103) 5.5 ± 0.40 3.9 ± 0.32* 71
Density BrdU+ cells (103 /mm3) 2.3 ± 0.33 1.4 ± 0.090 60
  1. Cell number was assessed by stereological analyses. N = 4 per group, *p < 0.05 (Student's t-test).
