Effect of chronic injury with cigarette smoke on Aldh2*2 Tg and WT mice. a Effect of 16 weeks of CS (or sham) exposure on body weight (BW) of Aldh2*2 Tg mice and their WT littermates. b A representative graph showing the CT-calculated changes in lung volume versus CT-values in the non-smoking and smoking groups. c A graph showing the mean linear intercept (Lm) quantification of all histological analyses from all mice. NS: Non-smoking, S: smoking. d-g Representative immune fluorescence stained images showing that compared to naïve WT (d), naïve Tg mice express higher Prdx1 (e). CS exposure upregulated Prdx1 expression in both WT (f) and Tg (g). d-g Scale bars: 50 μm. Prdx1-green, Nuclei were stained with DAPI (blue) (d-g)
