Effect of gender on training-induced vascular remodeling in SHR. S.L. Amaral and L.C. Michelini.
Figure 1. Resting values of mean arterial pressure (MAP); relative hind limb resistance (HLR rel) and arteriolar wall-to-lumen ratio in the gracilis muscle of sedentary (S) and trained (T), normotensive (WKY) and spontaneously hypertensive (SHR) rats at rest. Nine to 12 rats/group. *P < 0.05 vs WKY; †P < 0.05 vs S (two-factor ANOVA). Lower right panel, Correlation between HLR rel and respective MAP in sedentary/trained WKY and SHR groups. Linear regression equations are: YWKY = 1.46x - 28, r = 0.28 (P > 0.05); YSHR = 1.35x - 32, r = 0.83 (P < 0.05): #denotes a significant correlation (Pearson correlation test).
