From the authors: “The present study demonstrates that adaptations of ventricular function, ventricular relaxation and coronary resistance artery responsiveness to long-term aerobic exercise training are impaired in adiponectin-deficient mice.” 

This study is highlighted as one of July’s “best of the best” as part of the American Physiological Society's APSselect program.
