  • The main characteristics of type 1 diabetic cardiomyopathy include depressed contractility and altered electrophysiological properties in ventricular myocytes. The goal of the present study was to determine the potential influence of gender in the diabetes-induced pathogenesis of ventricular myocyte function. Diabetes in both male and female rats was induced by a single intravenous injection of streptozotocin (STZ). Diabetic rats exhibited hyperglycemia and reduced body weight gain in both male… CONTINUE READING
