Hello Cindy and "Friends in Cytometry",
It is indeed a very old PNAS paper accessible through:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC430788/pdf/pnas00038-0355.pdf

Another paper: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/cyto.990010203/pdf

Hi All- 

I pulled Dr. Darzynkiewicz's answer (below) to a post regarding sorting live proliferating cells from the archives (July 2007).  Does anyone have a specific reference for this in action??  Looking thru the literature on this is daunting, to say the least. 

Thanks, 
Cindy   


"Cells that proliferate, especially in S and G2M, have higher RNA and 
protein content and are distinctly larger than non-proliferating cells 
The difference is particularly striking (~ 10 fold in RNA content) if 
one compares quiescent genuine G0- with G1-S-G2M proliferating cells. 
Cell size, thus (volume, forward light scatter) could provide some 
discrimination between live cycling vs non-cycling cells, without a need 
to for fluorochrome-labeling."
