Cleaved caspase 3 and XIAP expression in control and GDM human placentas. Levels of cleved caspase 3 and XIAP (n = 5) were measured by western blot and quantified by Spot Denso analysis; histograms show mean ± SEM. Cleaved caspase 3 was elevated in both the GDM-D and GDM-I placentas (p < 0.05) when compared to controls (a). XIAP protein was decreased only in the GDM-I placentas (p < 0.03) when compared to controls (b). Experiments were conducted in triplicate and statistically different values are noted as * p < 0.05
