Potential of AgNWs to induce the nuclear translocation of NF-kB in endothelial cells at 4 h post-exposure. The alveolar model was exposed to AgNWs at the three concentrations studied. Cells exposed to vehicle served as Negative Control. Positive Control was exposed to Lipopolysaccharides (LPS) at a concentration of 10 μg/mL for the same period of time. Cells were fixed and stained for NF-kB (green) and nuclei (blue)
