Figure 3

Protein expression of inhibitory kappa Bα(IκBα) and phospho (Ser32)-Iκbα in the soleus muscle of DS rats. The expression of IκBα was decreased, the ratio of IκBα/phospho-IκBα (Ser32) was increased in the muscle of hypertensive DS rats, which were significantly inhibited by the treatment of either angiotensin receptor 1 blocker (ARB) candesartan or antioxidant tempol. *P < 0.05 vs. NS, #p < 0.05 vs. HS. N = 4-5.
