In long-term diabetes mellitus, the progression of nephropathy has been related to the occurrence of autonomic neuropathy. This study was designed to evaluate the effects of bilateral denervation of the kidneys of streptozotocin-diabetic rats, an experimental model that presents diabetic nephropathy with increased abundance of cortical GLUT1 in the kidney(More)
This study explored physiological mechanisms of diabetic dysfunction in baroreceptors and chemoreceptors-mediated hemodynamic responses, and cholinergic neurotransmission in 30-day diabetic rats (n = 14) and controls (n = 14). Basal hemodynamic data and vagal response to electrical stimulation and methacholine injection were also evaluated. Muscarinic(More)
INTRODUCTION In this study we evaluate the effects of exercise training (10 weeks) on soleus muscle morphology in diabetic nerve regeneration after injury by sciatic nerve crush. METHODS Wistar rats were assigned to either a non-diabetic (n = 6), non-diabetic injured (n = 6), diabetic (n = 6), diabetic injured (DC; n = 9), or trained diabetic injured(More)
