Supplementary Material

"Supplementary Table: Normalized gene expression values (∆∆Ct) of all tested conditions. Curcumin and its analogue (C-150) induced expression changes in apoptotic and cell-cycle related genes as determined by high-throughput QPCR. Most of the affected genes showed similar changes suggesting that the related compounds act through similar signaling pathways. C-150 possessed dose dependent effects on certain apoptosis and cell cycle related genes in 40-fold lower concentration than curcumin which could be enhanced by coadministration with bortezomib. Red cells: at least 2 fold induction, green cells: at least 2 fold repression, nd: not detected transcript.
