Data were expressed as mean ± SE (n = 6). #p < 0.01 compared with normal control group. *p < 0.05 compared with diabetic control group. **p < 0.01 compared with diabetic control group. Gr I: Normal; Gr II: T2D control, Gr III: T2D + AA (100 mg/kg, p.o.); Gr IV: T2D + AA (200 mg/kg, p.o.); Gr V: T2D + glibenclamide (1 mg/kg, p.o.).
