Figure 7

Plasma renin levels and prorenin receptor and AT 2 expression in cardiac myocytes. Plasma renin (A) and AT2(C) levels were determined by Western blot analysis and PRR (B) expression was measured by real-time RT-PCR, in control, diabetic (STZ + Veh), and diabetic mice treated with different RAS inhibitors, after 10 wks of diabetes (C). Representative Western blot images are shown. Values are expressed as the fold change compared to control ± SEM. *P < 0.05 vs. control.
