  • Histological sections from pancreata of naive RIP-Tag2+ mice taken upon onset of blood glucose levels at or below 5 mM, or age-matched transgene-negative controls, were stained with H&E. Diameters of islets were measured on random sections of pancreata from 3 to 4 mice per group using vernier gradations on a light microscope. Data are diameters of normal islets (for transgene-negative samples) and hyperplastic or encapsulated islets (for RIP-Tag2+ samples), and are expressed in millimeters.
