SHS exposure during pregnancy has adverse effects on offspring. We used microarrays to characterize the gene expression changes caused by in-utero SHS exposure and adult (19-23 weeks) OVA challenge in 23-week mouse lungs. Left lungs from Balb/c male and female mice were collected at 23 weeks of age for RNA extraction and hybridization on Affymetrix mouse 430 2.0 microarrays. Based on the gender differences and in-utero exposure status, there are 4 groups of mice, females and males, exposed in-utero to filtered-air or SHS. All were exposure to OVA (19-23 weeks). We extracted RNA from 4 animals from each group for microarray analysis (total N = 16 samples).
