Schematic representation of the pDC exposure to Diuron and experimental schedule. a Molecular analyses (RT-qPCR, qMSRE, ELISA, ChIP) were performed 72 h after the Diuron exposure (25 mg/L). Lysis assay was performed 96 h after the Diuron exposure (25 mg/L). b The impact of Diuron on the viability of pDC was investigated using the XTT Cell Viability Kit (Cell Signaling, France). ABT737, a BH3 mimetic drug, was used as positive control for apoptosis induction. c Caspase-3 activity (Caspase-3 assay kit, Abcam, France) was measured to determine whether the pDC exposure to Diuron or ABT737 promoted apoptosis. Ctrl represents control exposure performed with DMSO
