  1. Data expressed as mean ± standard error of mean (SEM). *Indicates significant differences between male and female (unpaired Student's t-test, p < 0,05); #Indicates significant differences between WKY e SHR (unpaired Student's t-test, p < 0,05). SAP = systolic arterial pressure, DAP = diastolic arterial pressure, MAP = mean arterial pressure
