Abnormal Ambient Glucose Levels Inhibit Proteoglycan Core Protein Gene Expression and Reduce Proteoglycan Accumulation during Chondrogenesis: Possible Mechanism for Teratogenic Effects of Maternal Diabetes

Using a tissue culture system based on a nearly pure population of avian precartilage mesenchymal cells, we have found that ambient glucose levels as little as 50% lower, or 100% higher, than normally present in embryonic sera are deleterious to cartilage development, as measured by the...
