Figure 2. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in locomotor and non-locomotor muscles after 3 days (left panels) and 13 weeks (right panels) of exercise. Top of each panel, Total protein (80 µg) from a single rat was loaded (illustrative). Lanes of each gel are as follows: lane 1: positive control (mouse kidney); lane 2: WKYS; lane 3: WKYT; lane 4: SHRS; lane 5: SHRT. Bottom of each panel, Quantitative densitometry of VEGF protein in pools of 6-7 rats/group after 3 days (left) or 13 weeks (right) in locomotor (upper panels) and non-locomotor (lower panels) muscles. Data are reported as means ± SEM for 6-7 rats in each group. WKY = Wistar Kyoto rats; SHR = spontaneously hypertensive rats; S = sedentary rats; T = trained rats. *P < 0.05 compared to sedentary rats (two-way ANOVA).
