Gene expression analysis using Illumina identified IL8 as a common biomarker of telomerase response. a Schematics of the Transcriptome-wide gene expression analysis is described. It was performed in HCT116, OVCAR5 and COLO205 cells. Briefly equal number of cells from these cell lines were either untreated or treated with imetelstat for 2 weeks after which RNA was isolated and candidate genes that were either upregulated or downregulated were identified. b Venn diagram showing the common genes that were identified after imetelstat treatment in between two cell lines and also between three cell lines
