Abstract:

The colony-forming unit CFU exhibits many properties of the hematopoietic stem cell, and CFU methodology has been extensively used in many laboratories to assess radiation damage to the hematopoietic system of mice. The radiation responses of CFUs may be measured by either the endogenous or the transplantation method, and with either method, the number of spleen nodules decreases exponentially with increasing radiation exposure.
