Effects of DE and TAC on lung weight and inflammatory cytokine expression. (A) Lung weights as measured at necropsy were collected and analyzed in FA/FA (n = 7 sham, n = 8 TAC), FA/DE (n = 3 sham, n = 3 TAC), DE/FA (n = 5 sham, n = 5 TAC) and DE/DE (n = 5 sham, n = 4 TAC) groups. Relative real-time PCR analysis of IL6 (B) and TNFα (C) mRNA content in the lung as expressed as negative delta delta CT from FA/FA sham normalized to GAPDH.
