Figure S1. Genotyping results of the selected SNPs in the NFκB and IκBα genes. (A). Genotyping of rs28362491del>ins ATTG in NFκB1, rs12769316G>A in NFκB2, rs2233406C>T and rs696G>A in IκBα detected by the TaqMan allelic discrimination assay. (B). The genotypes of the four SNPs were validated by direct sequencing and the results were all 100% concordant. Table S1. Primary information on the TaqMan assay of four SNPs in the NFκB and IκBα genes. Table S2. Frequency distributions of selected variables in NPC patients and controls. Briefly, only the factors including smoking, drinking status, and EBV status had significant different between cases and controls in the two study populations.
