Exposure to PM2.5 induces early kidney lesions with the presence of tubular deterioration. After eight exposure weeks (4 days/week, 5 h/ day) in kidney histology we observed tubular lesion of hematoxylin and eosin staining slides (a). Tubular damage was corroborate by the immunodetection of Kidney injury molecule-1 (KIM-1) (b). On boxplot graphic * indicates statistical differences (p < 0.05)
