GDX young male mouse hearts had smaller infarcts than controls. a Representative heart sections stained with TTC from intact (top) and GDX (bottom) male mice. b GDX mouse hearts had significantly smaller infarcts than intact, age-matched controls. Values are expressed as the mean ± SEM. Data were analyzed with a Mann-Whitney U test. Results showed that infarcts in intact male hearts were significantly larger than in the hearts from GDX males (U = 1.0, p = 0.032). The asterisk denotes significantly different from intact male (p < 0.05). Intact male, n = 5; GDX male, n = 4
