Figure 3

Effects of DG post-treatment on mitochondrial Ca2+ loading and cytochrome c release in ISO-challenged rat hearts. Animals were sacrificed at four hours after ISO challenge. Myocardial mitochondrial Ca2+ content and cytochrome c release were measured. The lowest panel shows the representative immuno-stained band of cytochrome c of myocardial cytosolic fractions prepared from various experimental groups. The non-striped bar represents the non-ISO challenged group and the striped bar represents the ISO-challenged group. Values are means ± SD (n = 6). * Significantly different from the non-ISO-challenged animals without DG treatment (ie CON); significantly different from the ISO-challenged CON
