The development of the pancreatic B cells in the offspring of normal (N), subdiabetic (SD), manifest diabetic (MD) and insulin-treated diabetic (MDI) rats was studied with the aid of immunocytochemical staining for insulin. Morphometric evaluation of the B-cell volume density and weight was made by point sampling. The offspring were studied on gestational days 20 and 22 and in the newborn state. In the N offspring the weight of the B-cell parenchyma doubled during the last 2 days of gestation… CONTINUE READING
