Sex differences in TG homeostasis. a Profile of TG species in cardiac tissue, as measured by LC-MS/MS, presented as fold change between NOD and Wistar rats by sex. An asterisk (*) indicates that the fold change is statistically significant. A section sign (§) indicates that the ANOVA interaction term is significant, and therefore, the fold changes in males and females are also significant. A dagger (†) indicates that in the ANOVA model, the overall sex difference is statistically significant. b Distribution of enriched and depleted of TG moities. The asterisk (*) indicates that the distribution is significantly different than a binomial distribution with mean = 0.5. The dagger (†) indicates that the distribution in males and females differ significantly. c The total amount of TG present in the cardiac tissue as measured by spectrophotometric analysis, mean ± SEM (N = 6). P < 0.05 is the significance level for all tests
