Fig. 1. CDC lane in panel A, and left lane in panel C, are cloned.
Fig. 2A - CD and CDC portions of blot (left and right sides), b-actin controls are the same blot.
Fig. 5A - Curcumin 30 min left panel (green cells) is the same as CDC 45 min. right panel (green cells). Also similarities here with Fi.g 2 of PMID 19735646. This paper is cyclodetran-conjugated curcumin, and the other paper is nanoparticle curcumin - many overlapping images between the 2 papers.
