  1. The nanograms of each PAH in the 20 μL PM exposure were calculated based on a dose of 12.5 mg/mL SRM1650b PM or SRM2975 PM. The 8 h and 24 h air exposure equivalents were calculated based on the nanograms of PAHs per exposure and the amount of air a mouse would breathe in 8 h, which is 0.01m3 and 24 h, which is 0.03m3
