Figure 2

(a)–(c) Confocal scanning-laser microscope of transverse sections of the soleus muscle from the control (Con, (a)), diabetes (DB, (b)), and diabetes with exercise (DBEx, (c)) groups. The capillaries are visible as light spots. (d) The luminal diameter of capillaries in the Con, DB, and DBEx groups. Values are the mean ± standard error. * and † indicate significant differences in the Con and DB groups, respectively, at 𝑃 < 0 . 0 5 . Bar = 50 μm.
