  1. Values are expressed in arbitrary units (AU). Mean values of control male rat were set as 100%. Values are expressed as the mean ± S.E.M. of 7 animals per group. ANOVA (p < 0.05): S, sex effect; D, diet effect; SxD, interactive effect; NS, non significant; Student's t-test (p < 0.05): aHF vs Control, bFemale vs Male.
