(A) Blood glucose levels in steers administered a bolus of saline (CON), lipopolysaccharide (LPS-C), or lipopolysaccharide accompanied with a euglycemic clamp (LPS-Eu) during both hyperglycemic (0–150 min) and hypoglycemic (180–720 min) phases; (B) the average rate of glucose infusion in LPS-Eu steers; and (C) circulating insulin levels in CON, LPS-C, and LPS-Eu steers during the hypoglycemic phase (180–720 min).
