The purpose of this study was to investigate the proteomic mechanisms of Jet Propulsion-8 (JP-8) toxicity in the lung, specifically relating to lung epithelial cell apoptosis and edema. Male Swiss-Webster mice were exposed to 1 h/day aerosolized JP-8 jet fuel at concentrations of 250, 1000, and 2500 mg/m(3) for 7 days. Lung cytosol and whole lung samples… CONTINUE READING
