Figure 1. Expression of VEGF in the kidney. The expression level of VEGF increased significantly in the diabetic sedentary group compared to sedentary control groups (P < 0.01, *). Exercise training significantly decreased the expression level of VEGF (P < 0.01, #) in diabetic rats. SC: sedentary control; EC: exercised control; SD: sed­entary diabetic; ED: exercised diabetic.
