RT-PCR analysis of mRNA expression of adipoR1 in abdominal aorta in control and diabetic rats treated with or without telmisartan. Mean band density was normalized relative to GAPDH. Control (C), diabetic (D), diabetic treated (DT). Data are expressed as mean ± S.E.M (n = 10 per group). * P <0.05 different from control, # P <0.05 different from diabetic.
