RT-PCR analysis of myocardial mRNA expression of GLUT4 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.
