Serum alanine concentration was determined in nonpregnant and pregnant normal control Swiss albino (SA) and genetically diabetic KK mice. The serum alanine levels were significantly lower in nonpregnant KK than in nonpregnant SA mice. Fasting elicited hypoglycemia, hypoinsulinemia and hypoalaninemia in both groups of pregnant mice. Oral administration of alanine in nonpregnant and pregnant mice resulted in a significant rise in blood sugar levels within 15 min in both groups. However, the… CONTINUE READING
