Effect of CS exposure and BMP-6 deficiency on the total number of bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) cells and cell subsets in BAL fluid. Total BAL cells (a), macrophages (b), neutrophils (c), monocytes (d), CD4+ T lymphocytes (e), and CD8+ T lymphocytes (f) in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid of WT and BMP-6 KO mice upon 4 weeks exposure to air or CS. All cell types were enumerated by flow cytometry. Data are expressed as mean ± SEM (n = 8−12 animals/group; *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01). Data shown are representative of two independent experiments
