Validation of selected genes differentially regulated after array analysis by qRT-PCR in differentiated pHBE at different time points after exposure. The expression of GPX2 is only slightly upregulated by ECIG after 24 h but significantly induced in a time dependent manner after TCIG-exposure (a). The expression of S100A7 (b) and S100A12 (c) is significantly induced 24 h after EZig-exposure and further increased significantly by TCIG at the same time-point. N = 6, one-way ANOVA, Tukey-Kramer adjusted post-hoc t-test, * p < 0,05, ** p < 0,01, *** p < 0,001
