Gene expression profiles in rat lung following intratracheal instillation with impurity-free single-wall carbon nanotubes

ABSTRACT: To further development of our gene expression approach to assess the effects of manufactured nanomaterials at the transcriptional level, we have employed whole genome microarray expression profiling as a discovery platform to identify genes with the potential to distinguish characterization of physicochemical properties of impurity-free single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs). We have prepared two types of dispersed the SWCNTs, namely relatively small bundles and a short linear shape (CNT-1) and large bundles and a long linear shape (CNT-2), and attempted to characterize time-dependent changes in the gene expression of lung tissues until 90 days after intratracheal instillation with SWCNTs suspensions at 0.4 mg injected dose per rat. Groups of nine-week-old male Wistar rats (n= 4 per group/ time point) were intratracheally instilled with single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) suspended in 0.4 ml of 1.0mg/mL bovine serum albumin (BSA) as a single injection 0.4 mg SWCNTs/ rat. Control groups received 1.0mg/mL BSA (vehicle control). After intratracheal instillation treatment, rats were housed within polycarbonate cages at a controlled temperature of 22 °C with a chow diet ad libitum, and dissected at 1day, 3 days, 7 days, 30 days, and 90 days post-instillation. Right lungs of anesthetized rats were perfused with physiological saline, excised, and used for DNA microarray analysis.
