Persistence of Th17/Tc17 Cell Expression upon Smoking Cessation in Mice with Cigarette Smoke-Induced Emphysema
Elevated mRNA expressions of RORγt and IL-17 are not reversible after smoking cessation. The mRNA expressions of RORγt and IL-17 in lungs of nonsmoke mice, smoke-exposed mice, and smoke cessation mice were measured by using ELISA. (a) mRNA expressions of RORγt in lungs; (b) mRNA expressions of IL-17 in lungs. Results are expressed as mean SEM. animals/group; *.
