Time-course of changes in the ROS content and the number of endothelial cells in the aorta from the hypertensive rats administered kefir. The graphs show production of superoxide anion (a), hydrogen peroxide (b), peroxynitrite/hydroxyl radical (c), nitric oxide (d), and the number of endothelial cells (e) measured through flow cytometry and comparing SHR-kefir group with non-treated SHR and Wistar rats. The values are the mean ± SEM. *p < 0.05 vs. Wistar group; #p < 0.05 vs. SHR (two-way ANOVA)
