Synthesis phase of proliferating neurilemma cells in adult mouse sciatic nerve was studied during Wallerian degeneration. Its duration was found to be relatively constant (8.6-10.3 hours) and independent of variations in the neurilemma cell labeling index (0.8-15.5%). By the same technique, the duration of the synthesis phase in proliferating neurilemma cells in 2-day-old mouse sciatic nerve (10.5 hours) was roughly comparable to that during peripheral nerve degeneration in the adult mouse.
