  1. Results are expressed as means ± standard deviation of 10 animals per group. SA: Sedentary alloxan, SC: Sedentary control, CC: Continuous training control, CA: Continuous training alloxan, IC: Intermittent training control and IA: Intermittent training alloxan. Letter indicate a statistically significant difference among groups (Two- way ANOVA (3 × 2) and Bonferroni post hoc test, p < 0.05) referring DNA and Protein/DNA ratio. d, statistically significant difference for CA vs. IA.
