RESULTS: The levels of reactive metabolite binding in incubations of rhesus ethmoturbinates and maxilloturbinates are similar to those in incubations of target tissues, including rat septal/olfactory regions and murine dissected airway incubations.
Ethmoturbinates and maxillo-turbinates were obtained from eight male and seven female rhesus macaques through the California National Primate Research Center [animal characteristics are available in Supplemental Material, Table 1 (doi:10.
5 nmol/mg protein; we noted no statistically significant difference in the data obtained from rat olfactory and septal epithelium compared with rhesus ethmoturbinates and maxilloturbinates (Figure 1).
