Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Placentas from pregnancies complicated by Type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM 1) display altered vascular morphology and function. Here we studied the extent of pericyte coverage in microvessels of normal pregnancies and pregnancies complicated by DM 1. We used smooth muscle actin (SMA) as a marker for quantitation of pericyte coverage in placental capillaries. The extent of pericyte coverage around the vessel circumference was 38 ± 11% in normal vs. 33 ± 10% in DM 1 pregnancies. We found that there is no statistically significant difference in the extent of pericyte coverage around the capillary circumference between DM 1 and normal pregnancies.
