Diabetes was induced in adult rats weighing between 150-200 g by a single intra-peritoneal injection of streptozocin (STZ, 60 mg/kg) dissolved in citrate buffer (pH 4.5) and fed normally thereafter (16).
After overnight fasting, a single injection of streptozocin (STZ) 50 mg/kg in a freshly prepared solution of normal saline (0.9% w/v) was administered intraperitoneally to the rats to induce diabetes (Mohan et al., 2013; Tzeng et al., 2014).
