Differences in the recovery of contractile function between GDX and age-matched control male mouse hearts. a LVDP recovered significantly better throughout the reperfusion duration in GDX compared to control young male mouse hearts. Similarly, b RPP, c +dP/dt, and d −dP/dt also recovered significantly better in reperfusion in GDX compared to controls. Values are expressed as the mean ± SEM. Data were analyzed with two-way repeated measures ANOVA with GDX as a main factor and time as the repeated measure. Detailed statistical analysis is presented in Additional file 3: Table S3. The asterisk denotes significantly different from intact male mice. Intact male, n = 5; GDX male, n = 4
