Proteins of angiotensin-, and bradykinin- systems respond at the end of eight weeks to PM2.5 exposure. After eight exposure weeks (4 days/week, 5 h/ day) in kidney rats, we observed an augment in angiotensin-converter enzyme (ACE) and angiotensin-receptor type-I (AT1R), (a) and (b) respectively. Bradykinin receptor type-1 (B1R) increase and tissue kallikrein (KLK-1) decrease, (c) and (d) respectively. On boxplot graphyc * indicates statistical differences (p < 0.05)
