a Western blot analysis of LC3-II and p62 levels in lysates from NHBE cells (i) untreated and cultured for 48 h with (ii) E64d + PepA, (iii) Euro 5, (iv) Euro 5 + E64d + PepA, (v) Euro 4, (vi) Euro 4 + E64d + PepA. Blot shown is representative of nine experiments (N = 9). b Densitometry analysis of LC3-II levels relative to β-actin (mean ± SD). P = 0.0012 for Euro 5 vs untreated; P = 0.02 for Euro 5 vs Euro 5 + E64d + PepA; P = 0.0098 for Euro 4 vs untreated; P = 0.0407 for Euro 4 vs Euro 4 + E64d + PepA; P = 0.0107 for Euro 5 vs Euro 4. c Densitometry analysis of p62 levels relative to β-actin (mean ± SD). No significant (NS, P > 0.05) differences in p62 levels were found
