Supplementary Data. Result of human phospho-kinase array assays.

Allicin activated the AKT, P53, and JNK (c-Jun) pathway in SKOV3 cells were detected by human phospho-kinase array analysis. As shown, the first photo was negative control while the second was allicin (12.5μg/ml) intervention group; As a result, the signals of AKT and P53 were weakly different between the two photos; However, the signal of JNK was extremely increased in allicin group compared with the negative control. Therefore, JNK pathway was novel finding in this setting.
