Pulmonary mRNA expression and localization of BMP-6 in cigarette smoke-exposed C57BL/6 mice. mRNA levels of Bmp-6 (a), Id1 (b), and hepcidin (c) in lung of C57BL/6 mice exposed to CS for 4 and 24 weeks, as measured by qRT-PCR. d−g Representative images of BMP-6-stained lung sections of air- and CS-exposed mice. Detail on airway smooth muscle cells in (f). Original magnification ×200. Data are expressed as mean ± SEM (n = 8−10 animals/group; **P < 0.01)
