Table 1 Percentage of cells recovered after heat shock treatment. Values shown are mean percentages (plus or minus standard errors, n = 3) of fibroblasts collected from 10 cm culture dishes prior to and 24 hours and 48 hours after heat shock for a period of 30 minutes at 45°C.

From: Dermal fibroblasts in Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome with the lamin A G608G mutation have dysmorphic nuclei and are hypersensitive to heat stress
