OBJECTIVE This study was designed to investigate the effect of angiotensin (1-7), a Mas receptor agonist, and A-779, a Mas receptor antagonist, in rats with diabetic cardiomyopathy (DC). METHODS Rats treated with a single injection of streptozotocin (50 mg/kg, intraperitoneal), developed DC after 8 weeks. The extent of DC was assessed by measuring the left ventricular weight/body weight (LVW/BW) ratio, absolute LVW, left ventricular developed pressure (LVDP), maximum change in left… CONTINUE READING
