Table 2 Treatment effects on placental morphometry from Experiment 1

From: Glucosamine supplementation during late gestation alters placental development and increases litter size

  Glucosaminea Glucose
Variable Large Small Large Small
Fold Width, μmb 778 ± 37 818 ± 37 716 ± 36 731 ± 36
Stromal Width, μmc 236 ± 28 142 ± 28 140 ± 27 146 ± 27
Total Width, μmb 1014 ± 47 961 ± 47 856 ± 46 876 ± 46
Interface length/unit placental lengthc 7470 ± 403 7546 ± 403 6969 ± 389 6727 ± 389
  1. aNumber of observations is 16 for glucosamine and 17 for glucose. Least squares means for bilayer fold width, stromal width above the folded bilayer, total placental width and placental bilayer interface length per unit placental length from Exp. 1 are presented
