Induction of Ccl3, Ccl11 , and Mmp13 in lungs of C57BL/6 mice exposed to MWCNTs. Real-Time PCR analysis was performed in the left lung of vehicle (10% surfactant in saline), 1 mg/kg, 2 mg/kg, and 4 mg/kg MWCNTs instilled C57BL/6 mice for genes (A) Ccl3, (B) Ccl11, and (C) Mmp13. The mean ± SEM of six mice per group are shown, # p < 0.05, ## p < 0.01, and ### p < 0.001 compared with the vehicle control mice; + p < 0.05 compared between two groups.
