Table 2 Group measurements of arterial GAG in control and diabetic monkeys

From: Arterial heparan sulfate is negatively associated with hyperglycemia and atherosclerosis in diabetic monkeys

  CS μg/mg dlt DS μg/mg dlt HS μg/mg dlt
C (7) 1.8 ± 0.3* 0.7 ± 0.2 0.9 ± 0.1
D (8) 2.1 ± 0.6 0.8 ± 0.3 1.1 ± 0.2
  1. *Values are mean ± SEM of total CS, DS and HS in segments of thoracic aortas. C, control; D, diabetic; CS, chondroitin sulfate; DS, dermatan sulfate; HS heparan sulfate; dlt, delipidated tissue.
