Short-term and long-term effects of PAHs on C33A and CaSki cell proliferation. Cells were treated with various concentrations (0–10 μM) of PAHs for three days (a). Cell proliferation was assessed by CCK-8 and represented as a percentage over DMSO-treated control group. Effects of PAHs were compared between three-day and three-month exposure of 1 μM of PAHs (b). Data are the mean ± SEM values obtained from triplicate culture wells per group from three independent experiments. Significant level: *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001. BaP, benzo[a]pyrene; DBA, dibenz[a,h]anthracene; IDP, indeno[1,2,3-cd]pyrene; PR, pyrene
