Figure 3: Adenoviral expression of adiponectin improves LPS-induced cardiac dysfunction. Quantitative analysis of %FS 6 h following LPS injection in WT and APN-KO mice pretreated with Ad-APN or Ad-gal (control). Ad-APN or Ad-gal ( pfu total) was delivered intravenously via the tail vein 5 d before LPS injection ( in each group). Results are presented as mean ± SE.
