  1. “Yes” under “Basis for selection” indicates individual candidate genes with the p-value listed. For the MTS assay, “Yes” indicates that knockdown of the gene altered taxane cytotoxicity when compared with control siRNA. All of the experiments with significant changes were performed in triplicate and were replicated at least three times.
