Changes of chymase-like and ACE activities after chymase inhibition with chymostatin in hamster lungs. (a) Chymase-like activity. (b) ACE activity. Control: control group; CS: cigarette smoke-exposed group; 1 mg/kg Chymo: hamsters treated with 1 mg/kg chymostatin alone; 2 mg/kg Chymo: hamsters treated with 2 mg/kg chymostatin alone; CS + 1 mg/kg Chymo: hamsters treated with cigarette smoke plus 1 mg/kg Chymostatin; CS + 2 mg/kg Chymo: hamsters treated with cigarette smoke plus 2 mg/kg Chymostatin. Values are expressed as mean ± SD (n = 6). * P < 0.05, significant difference from the control group. # P < 0.05, significant difference from the smoke-exposed group.
