TAp73 knockdown protects cancer cells from PpIX-induced cell death. a TAp73 knockdown with siRNA in H1299 cells as confirmed by qPCR. mRNA levels of TAp73 are not affected by 2.5 μg/ml PpIX. b TAp73 knockdown protects from PpIX-induced growth inhibition in H1299 cells. c, d Ablation of TAp73 protects from induction of proapoptotic target Noxa by PpIX on mRNA (c) and protein levels (d)
