Alteration of islet cell populations in spontaneously diabetic mice.

Endocrine-cell populations in the islets of Langerhans of mutant mice with a severe hypoinsulinemic diabetes (ob/ob or db/db on the C57BL/KsJ background) or with a mild hyperinsulinemic diabetes (ob/ob or db/db on the C57BL/6J background) were studied quantitatively by immunofluorescence and morphometry. In severely diabetic mice, islets presented a reduced… CONTINUE READING
