Male RccHan Wistar rats at the age of 7-8 weeks were randomly assigned to the vehicle or treatment group (n=5). Then 0 or 800 mg/kg metformin (Sigma Aldrich, Steinheim, Germany) was administered by gavage for 1, 3 or 14 consecutive days, followed by necropsy. Blood was collected for for lactate determination and several organs were removed, weighted, aliquoted, fixed in formalin for histopathological examinations or flash frozen in liquid nitrogen and stored at −80 °C for RNA isolation.
