Table 1 Body (BW), kidney (KW), and heart (HW) weights in experimental groups

From: High sugar intake via the renin-angiotensin system blunts the baroreceptor reflex in adult rats that were perinatally depleted of taurine

  1. Data were mean ± SEM. No significant difference among groups was noted (CW, control with water intake alone; CW+C, CW plus captopril treatment; CG, control with high sugar intake; CG+C, CG plus captopril treatment; TDW, perinatal taurine depletion with water intake alone ; TDW+C, TDW plus captopril treatment; TDG, perinatal taurine depletion with high sugar intake; TDG+C, TDG plus captopril treatment; TSW, perinatal taurine supplementation with water intake alone; TSW+C, TSW plus captopril treatment; TSG, perinatal taurine supplementation with high sugar intake; TSG+C, TSG plus captopril treatment).
