Fertility and Pregnancy-Associated ß-Cell Proliferation in Mice Deficient in Proglucagon-Derived Peptides
Blood glucose levels (A) (n = 49–51) and serum insulin levels (C) (n = 8–14) in ad libitum-fed Gcggfp/gfp mice during pregnancy. Fasting blood glucose levels (B) (n = 9–11) and serum insulin levels (D) (n = 6–14) in non-pregnant Gcggfp/gfp and pregnant Gcggfp/gfp mice. Open squares: Gcg+/+ and Gcggfp/+; closed squares: Gcggfp/gfp. Values are expressed as means±SEM. *p<0/05, **p<0.01, ***p<0.001.
