  • Fig. S1. Effects of α-tocopherol and γ-tocopherol on normal prostate epithelial cell viability and the phosphorylation and intracellular localization of Akt in prostate cancer cells.
  • Fig. S2. Evidence that tocopherols promote dephosphorylation of Ser473 in Akt by recruitment of Akt and PHLPP1 to the plasma membrane.
  • Fig. S3. Effect of α-VE5 and γ-VE5 on the phosphorylation of Akt in prostate cancer cells.
  • Fig. S4. Evidence that α-VE5 and γ-VE5 promote dephosphorylation of Ser473 in Akt by recruitment of Akt and PHLPP1 to the plasma membrane.
  • Fig. S5. α-VE5– and γ-VE5–induced colocalization of Akt and PHLPP1 to the nonraft domains of the plasma membrane, essential role of PHLPP1 in α-VE5– and γ-VE5–induced Akt dephosphorylation, and in vivo tumor-suppressive activity of γ-VE5 in the LNCaP-abl xenograft tumor model.
  • Fig. S6. Membrane recruitment of Akt and PHLPP1 by tocopherols and VE5 compounds is PH domain–dependent.
