  1. Morphometric and metabolic parameters were collected from Wistar (W), diabetic Wistar (D-W), Wistar-Kyoto (WKY), diabetic Wistar-Kyoto (D-WKY), SHR (SHR) and diabetic SHR (D-SHR). Data are mean ± SEM of 5 to 7 animals. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001 vs. W; +P < 0.05, ++P < 0.01, +++P < 0.001 vs. WKY; °°°P < 0.001 vs. SHR; §§§P < 0.001 vs. D-W. One-way ANOVA, Student Newman Keuls (SNK) post hoc test.
