Male Fischer rats received nose-only inhalation exposures of 2 ppm formaldehyde. Three exposure durations were investigated: (1) 2 ppm formaldehyde exposure, 6 hours/day, for 7 days (7-day group), (2) 2 ppm formaldehyde exposure, 6 hours/day, for 28 days (28-day group), and (3) 2 ppm formaldehyde exposure, 6 hours/day, for 28 days, with a 7 day recovery period following the last exposure (28-day plus recovery group). Control (unexposed) rats were placed in nose-only exposure tubes containing room air for the same duration. After the last exposure period (or the last recovery period for the 28-day plus recovery group), animals were euthanized. RNA were assessed from sampes collected from the nasal epithelium, circulating white blood cells, and bone marrow cells. Genome-wide miRNA expression profiles were evaluated using microarrays.
