Diabetes mellitus is a common and serious metabolic disorder in humans. Streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic rats were shown to produce a significant reduction in the number of proliferating cells in the dentate gyrus. In the present study, the effect of treadmill exercise on cell proliferation in the dentate gyrus of rats with STZ-induced diabetes was investigated via immunohistochemistry. Male Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into four groups: the control-rest group, the control-exercise… CONTINUE READING
