Supplementary Material

Supplementary Table 1. Activity of citrate synthase as marker of mitochondrial mass [105], in human breast and colorectal cancers as well as in corresponding normal tissues. Enzymatic activity measured as mU/mg protein, mean ± SE. Supplementary Fig. 1. Quantification of Complex I subunit NDUFA9 expression levels using Western blot (WB) and anti-NDUFA9 antibody in HCC and healthy colon tissue samples (A); respective WB image of NDUFA9 protein levels (B). Levels of NDUFA9 were normalized to total protein content quantified by coomassie blue staining. Data are represented as mean values ± SEM from 4 independent experiments; * p<0.05.
