Figure 3

STZ-injected embryos display changes in biomarkers that are characteristic to diabetes. (a) Blood insulin from STZ-injected embryos (E18) is significantly lower than the control (injected with vehicle). (b) The protein levels of glucose transporter 4 (Glut4) and phosphorylated AKT at thr308 ( ) are significantly lower in the STZ-induced diabetic retinas compared to the control.
