Bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) analysis revealed increased cellularity and percent PMNs in RAGE TG compared to control mice. RAGE TG mice did not have significant differences in total BALF protein when compared to controls (A). However, the total number of leukocytes detected in BALF was statistically increased in samples from RAGE TG mice compared to controls (B). A closer inspection of total cells in BALF revealed that the percentage of PMNs was significantly elevated in RAGE TG mice (C). N = 6 animals per group, *p ≤ 0.05.
