Increased beta cell apoptosis in aP2-CETPTg mice compared with WT mice by TUNEL. Representative TUNEL-positive beta cells were marked with white arrows (Left). The number of cells positive for TUNEL was quantified in every single islet and expressed as percentage of the total number of beta cells (n = ~4000) (Right). Beta cells were counted in immunofluorescence staining pancreas section form 16 week-old male mice (n = 5 per group). Values are expressed as mean ± SD. **p < 0.01, compared with control group
