Adhesion assay of THP-1 monocytes to HAECs. a Representative images of THP-1 monocyte adhesion to HAECs. Panel (a) represents image under control conditions. (b) and (c) represent the adhesion of THP-1 cells to HAECs after exposure to 10 μg/ml of SWCNTs or DWCNTs for 16 h. b Relative number of THP-1 monocytes adherent to HAECs after exposure to SWCNTs or DWCNTs (0.01- 10 μg/ml) for 16 h. Data are mean ± SD. (n = 6,*p < 0.05 vs. control; CTL) SWCNT: single-walled carbon nanotube, DWCNT: double-walled carbon nanotube
