(a) Contractile responses of Wistar (control) and GK (diabetic) aorta smooth muscle. (b) Dimer (coupled) and monomer (uncoupled) eNOS in aorta of 18-week-old Wistar and GK animals. 15–30 μg of protein was loaded onto a 7.5% SDS-page gel and transferred to PVDF membrane at 4°C under nonreducing conditions.
