Abstract :

It is well established that physical exercise continues to be one of the most valuable forms of non-pharmacological therapy against diabetes mellitus; however, the precise mechanism remains unknown. The aim of this study was to investigate the cardio-protective effect of voluntary exercise in the Goto-Kakizaki type 2 diabetic rat hearts against ischemia reperfusion injury and to clarify its biochemical background, focusing on the nitric oxide synthase/hemeoxygenase system.
