Effects of glucose on rat embryos in culture


To elucidate the role of hyperglycaemia in causing fetal malformation, rat embryos have been grown in vitro from the head-fold stage for 48 h in the presence of excess glucose during different parts of the culture period. Culture of rat embryos for 10 or 21 h in 55 mmol/l exogenous glucose produced abnormalities observable after 48 h in culture. When… (More)
