Data for: Silica Induction of Diverse Inflammatory Proteome in Lungs of Lupus-prone Mice Quelled by Dietary Docosahexaenoic Acid Supplementation

James Pestka, Lichchavi Rajasinghe & Abby Benninghoff
Repeated short-term intranasal instillation of lupus-prone mice with to crystalline silica (cSiO2) induces inflammatory gene expression and ectopic lymphoid neogenesis in the lung, leading to early onset of systemic autoimmunity and rapid progression to glomerulonephritis. These responses are suppressed by dietary supplementation with the ω-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Here, we tested the hypothesis that dietary DHA supplementation suppresses cSiO2-induced inflammatory proteins in bronchoalveolar alveolar lavage fluid (BALF) and plasma of lupus-prone mice....
