Table 1 Body weight, blood pressure, spleen weight in the rats

From: Increased expression and functionality of the gap junction in peripheral blood lymphocytes is associated with hypertension-mediated inflammation in spontaneously hypertensive rats

Rats Body weight (g) SBP (mm Hg) Spleen weight (mg) Weight ratio of spleen to body (mg/g)
WKY (n = 20) 282.0 ± 3.2 119.6 ± 10.1 629.0 ± 15.6 2.23 ± 0.1
SHRs (n = 20) 290.8 ± 2.9 205.5 ± 10.5** 652.5 ± 11.2 2.17 ± 0.0
  1. SBP was increased in SHRs compared with WKY rats. **P < 0.01, compared with WKY group; Data are means ± SEM. SHRs, spontaneously hypertensive rats; WKY, Wistar Kyoto rats
