Predicted transcription factors of T-cell differentiation which are associated with PM exposure and the related cytokines change consistently in response to PM treatment in vivo. a, the expression levels of T-cell related transcription factors (Irf4, Batf4, Stat3) and IL-4 in mouse lung are measured using qPCR and compared between PM-treated group and the control group. Each treatment group contains six BALB/c mice; b, T-cell differentiation related cytokines in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid are measured using ELISA at 24 h following the treatment and compared between treatment group and control group (* P < 0.05, ** P < 0.01, *** P < 0.001)
