  1. Data are mean ± SD, n = 6 animals per group. Significance is *P < 0,05, **P < 0,01 and ***P < 0,001 (*vs. young control rats, #vs. young fa/fa rats, ovs. old control rats) using two-way ANOVA, Bonferroni post hoc test.
  2. Significance P<0.05, P<0.01, or P<0.001 is illustrated by one, two, or three symbols, respectively. Particular symbols are for particular groups compared.
