  1. Conduction velocity, diastolic and developed force in control (vehicle treated) and AAP10 treated strips from ZDF and ZDL rats. Data are shown as mean ± SEM during the last 10 min of each period (* P<0.05 for control versus AAP 10; # P<0.05 for ZDF versus ZDL, analyzed by factorial ANOVA followed by Fisher’s LSD post-hoc test).
