Mean femoral artery blood flow (FABF) values for 10 min intervals 60 to 0 minutes prior to exercise, during the 3-minute e-stim. exercise bout, and 0 to 90 min following exercise. Exercise increased blood flow within all groups compared to baseline values. Independent t-tests with correction for multiple comparisons revealed that 31 mg of oral ATP prolonged femoral artery blood flow compared to Ex/CTL rats 30 to 90 min post-exercise (p < 0.01 to p < 0.001). All data are presented as means ± standard errors; n = 4-5 animals per group.
