Effect of sex on renal cortical TGF-β protein abundance in control and diabetic rats treated with and without GH. (A) STZ and STZ + GH treatment increased female cortical TGF-β protein levels from control equally. *
P < 0.01 vs. female controls. (B) STZ treatment increased male TGF-B levels significantly, and STZ + GH significantly increased those levels. *
P < 0.01 vs. male controls, #
P < 0.05 vs. male STZ.
