HepG2 cells were treated with low (2.5 uM) or high (125 uM) concentrations of Tris (2-butoxyethyl) phosphate (TBOEP) in 0.1% DMSO. For control purposes cells were exposed to 0.1% DMSO alone. Treatment lasted for 72 hours. All treatments were conducted in triplicates, involving separate seeding of cells. RNA was isolated with Trizol (Invitrogen, USA) and RNeasy Kit (Qiagen, GER). Libraries were prepared with the TruSeq Stranded mRNA Sample Preparation Kit (Illumina, USA). 50bp long paired-ends reads were sequenced using the HiSeq(R) 1500 platform (Illumina, USA). Alignement to the UCSC hg19 assembly of the human genome, mapping and annotation was performed with CLC Genomics Workbench (CLC Bio, DEN). Samples were normalised by quantile normalisation. Differential expression p-values were generated using Baggerly's test statistic. These p-values were subsequently corrected with the Benjamini-Hochberg procedure to limit the false discovery rate (FDR) to 5% of the significant genes .
