Expression levels of mitochondrial biogenesis, division and fusion protein in left atrial tissue estimated by western blot. af Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-c coactivator 1a (PGC-1a), nuclear respiratory factor-1 (NRF-1), mitochondrial transcription factor A (Tfam), dynamin-related protein 1(DRP-1), mitofusin 1(Mfn-1) and optic atrophy 1(OPA-1) protein levels in the four study groups. *Compared with the control group, p < 0.05; **Compared with the diabetes mellitus (DM) group, p < 0.05. Each group included 3–5 rats
