Data for mammary biopsies obtained on day 21 of lactation are given. Clearly, measures of mammary epithelial cell structural differentiation correlate well with function. In this experiment, treatment with col­ chicine during the period just before calving prevented the normal structural differentiation of the epithelial cells. This in turn markedly impaired the functioning of the mammary gland despite the fact that drug treat­ ment was discontinued immediately after calving. The point of this is to illustrate how changes in cell dif­ ferentiation are closely related to cell function.

Panel C shows a paraffinembedded tissue block mounted in the microtome. With each up and down motion of the microtome, the block of tissue moves past a stationary knife so that a ribbon of serial sections (typically ∼5 μm thick) is cut. The ribbon of sections is transferred to a water bath (panel D) and ultimately floated onto a microscope slide. The sections are allowed to dry, then the paraffin is removed, the sections hydrated, stained, and subsequently cover-slipped for examination. 5 μm) can be prepared for light microscopy, and with the proper microtome, sections thin enough for electron microscopy can be prepared.

However, other components may also be excellent measures of growth. For example, an increase in muscle tissue would be an evidently desir­ able attribute for a lamb producer. Quantification of such an effect might be better confirmed by measuring total muscle protein rather than DNA. Clearly, the question of growth is complex, but understanding and regulating rates and types of tissue growth are key elements of many aspects of animal agriculture. For example, lamb or beef producers are concerned with getting their animals to market weight at an appropriate body composition as rapidly and 0 Before After A B Fig.
