Effects of fresh and heated soy oil on sodium nitroprusside-induced relaxation in aortic rings. Endothelium-independent relaxation in response to sodium nitroprusside (SNP) in aortic rings isolated from rats fed with basal diet (control), fresh soy oil (FSO), soy oil heated once (1HSO), soy oil heated twice (2HSO), soy oil heated five times (5HSO) or soy oil heated ten times (10HSO) at different concentrations. Values are expressed as means ± S.E.M. (n = 7), p < 0.05 indicates significant difference compared to acontrol, bFSO group, c1HSO group, d2HSO group.
