  1. Data are expressed as mean ± standard deviation or median and 25th and 75th percentiles
  2. SHR spontaneously hypertensive rats; SHR-APO SHR treated with apocynin; SHR-DM diabetic SHR; SHR-DM-APO diabetic SHR treated with apocynin; BW body weight; bpm beats per min; BP systolic blood pressure
  3. Two-factor ANOVA; * p < 0.05 vs SHR; # p < 0.05 vs SHR-APO
