|cea12143-sup-0001-FigS1.tif||image/tif||182K||Figure S1. Intranasal ApoA1 treatment inhibits lung dendritic cell accumulation in OVA-challenged mice. (a) On days 21–23, mice were instilled intratracheally with FITC-OVA. On days 24–25, ApoA1 was administered intranasally, and then the lungs were removed on day 26. Lungs were enzymatically digested and stained for the presence of FITC–MHCIIhigh–CD11Chigh–DCs, and subjected to flow cytometry. (b) In the same mice, the presence of FITC-migrating DCs in mediastinal lymph nodes was assessed. Results are representative of six mice per group. Experiments were repeated four times with similar results. Data are shown as means ± SEM. *P < 0.05.|

Immunofluorescence of occludin (a) and Zo-1 (b) in primary BECs from asthmatics treated with ApoA1, mutant ApoA1, or co-treated with ApoA1 (1 μg/mL) and cinnamyl-3,4-dihydroxy-α-cyanocinnamate (CDC; 2 μM, 12/15-LOX inhibitor) was treated for 72 h. Scale bar = 20 μm.|

Intranasal co-administration of CDC and ApoA1 increased airway inflammation, airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR), and disruption of bronchial TJs in HDM-induced murine asthma. (a) Numbers of bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) fluid cells in the four groups are shown as means ± SEM; **P < 0.01. (b) Fixed lung tissue specimens were sectioned and stained using H&E and periodic acid Schiff. (c) Airway resistance was measured following inhalation of increasing doses of methacholine. Each data point represents the mean ± SEM of six mice per group. *P < 0.05 HDM + ApoA1 + CDC vs. HDM + ApoA1. Data for Saline, HDM, and ApoA1 groups are from the same experiment represented in Fig. 1 and are included here for comparison with the data from the HDM + ApoA1 + CDC group (studied in the same experiments but not shown in Fig. 1).|
