Effects of hyperoxia exposure on the mRNA and protein expression of Cav-1 in an in vitro pulmonary epithelial barrier model. Alveolar cell monolayers were exposed to normoxia (N) (21 % O2/5 % CO2) or hyperoxia (H) (85 % O2/5 % CO2) for 0, 24, 48, and 72 h. Cav-1 mRNA (a, b) and protein (c, d) levels were monitored with RT-PCR and Western blot analysis, respectively. Values are represented as means ± SD, # P < 0.05 and ## P < 0.01 for comparison between the H and N groups, * P < 0.05 and ** P < 0.01 for comparison between different time points in the H group
