Lesions of organs with a high protein turnover are characteristic of kwashiorkor in humans. These lesions have been reproduced in rhesus monkeys by feeding them protein deficient diets. On the basis of a study of the cell population kinetics of the mucosa of the small intestine in this primate, it has been suggested that a retardation of cellular proliferation is characteristic of protein deficiency. In this communication, we describe preliminary observations on the influence of protein deficiency on cell population kinetics in regenerating livers of rats after partial hepatectomy.
