  • Fig. S2. t-BuOOH induces Il11 expression.
  • Fig. S3. Il11 mRNA expression is increased in dying cells.
  • Fig. S4. Activation of the ERK pathway is critical for Il11 mRNA expression in RelA–/– MEFs and HepG2 cells.
  • Fig. S5. The PI3K-Akt pathway partly contributes to the expression of Il11 mRNA.
