Figure S3. Curcumin selectively blocks mitotic progression in different cell lines. NT2 and MDCK cells were arrested with thymidine/nocodazole treatment. Cells were washed and then released from mitotic block with different concentrations of curcumin for indicated time points. DNA contents were analyzed for cell cycle progression. Data are expressed as mean ± SEM of three independent experiments.
