Figure 6

Implications of cell protein synthesis and proliferation rates for cancer treatment. Statistical significance is shown for increased in vitro sensitivity in cell lines with high protein synthesis rate per cell versus the statistical significance for increased sensitivity in cell lines with high proliferation rate. The horizontal/vertical dashed lines represent the threshold statistical significance of 0.05. Different symbols emphasize different drug classes as indicated in the legend, except for the solid squares that represent other mechanisms not indicated.
