Figure 2: Level of estrogen in the control and L-arginine-treated rats (5-50 mg/kg) (A) and effect of L-NAME pretreatment on estrogen levels in L-argingine treated rats (B). Data are shown as mean±SD. *P<0.05 indicates a significant difference between the lowest dose group (5 mg/kg) and the control group in the 3-day period based on the post hoc test. Furthermore, L-NAME blocks this effect when injected before L-arginine. Comparison between other groups does not show any significant difference.
