Fertility and Pregnancy-Associated ß-Cell Proliferation in Mice Deficient in Proglucagon-Derived Peptides
Blood glucose levels in non-pregnant Gcggfp/gfp mice (A) and pregnant Gcggfp/gfp mice (B) and the area under the curve for blood glucose levels(C) during OGTT. Serum insulin levels in non-pregnant Gcggfp/gfp mice (D) and pregnant Gcggfp/gfp mice (E) from 0 to 30 minutes following OGTT. Open squares: Gcg+/+ and Gcggfp/+ (n = 3–4); closed squares: Gcggfp/gfp (n = 3–5). Values are expressed as means±SEM. *p<0.05.
