Table 1 Effect of Bax genotype on properties of muscle colonies formed by the progeny of individual myogenic cells in vitro.

From: Immortalization of mouse myogenic cells can occur without loss of p16INK4a, p19ARF, or p53 and is accelerated by inactivation of Bax

Property Bax-positive ave ± SE (n) Bax-null ave ± SE (n) Significance*
Number of nuclei per colony 428 ± 17 (341) 486 ± 22 (303) P < 0.05
