mRNA expression in lung tissue of 11-13 weeks old apoE-/- mice exposed to carbon black by i.t. instillation. The data are expressed as fold increases in mRNA expression compared to the control group. The number of animals in each group is 22 (0 mg/kg), 5-6 (0.9 mg/kg, 2 h), 10 (0.05 mg/kg, 24 h), 9 (0.5 mg/kg, 24 h), 6 (0.9 mg/kg, 24 h), 4 (2.7 mg/kg, 24 h), 6 (2 × 0.5 mg/kg). * denotes statistically significant differences in mRNA level when compared to the control groups (P < 0.05, Kruskall-Wallis test, post-hoc Tukey-type multiple comparison test).
