Table 3 Summary of effects of 100 μ g particles/ml/million cells on cytoskeletal stiffness together with effect of co-incubation with different Ca-modulating drugs (100 μ M Verapamil, 20 μ M BAPTA-AM or 25 μ M W-7) as well as medium with serum (wFCS), with bovine serum albumin (BSA), or with 200 μ M Nacystelin (NAL); stiff. – stiffening, n.e. – no effect; N = 5; **: p < 0.01, *: p < 0.05.
