Airborne particulate matter (PM)2.5 exposure has been associated with a number of adverse health effects. However, the mechanisms underlying PM2.5 toxicity remain unclear. In the current proteomic study, 22 differentially expressed proteins responsive to water-soluble PM2.5 extract treatment in A549 cells were identified by 2-D difference gel electrophoresis and matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight tandem mass spectrometry. Furthermore, induction of apoptosis was proposed as a vital mechanism for water-soluble PM2.5 extract cytotoxicity. These results may provide useful insights into the mechanisms of PM2.5 toxicity and assist in the development of biomarkers of PM2.5 exposure.
