Impact of cherry consumption on vascular complications 4 months into the experimental period. Impacts of cherry consumption on a vascular function represented by NO-mediated relaxation induced by acetylcholine (Ach) on phenylephrine (PE) pre-contracted mesenteric artery and b characterization of endothelial dysfunction through the presence of reactive oxygen species by dihydroethidine fluorescent probe (DHE), the localization and expression of eNOS and the formation of nitrotyrosine after 4 months of normal diet (ND), high fat high fructose (HFHF) diet, HFHF 2 months + ND 2 months (HFHF/ND), HFHF 2 months + ND with cherry supplementation 2 months (HFHF/NDCherry) and HFHF 2 months + HFHF with cherry supplementation 2 months groups (HFHFCherry). A adventice, M media, I intima; bar scale = 50 µm. All the results are shown as the mean ± SEM of 6 different experiments. Asterisk represents significant results vs. ND
