Experimental Protocol

For the time series, at each time point (0, 2, 4, 6 hours) three yeast samples (2-copy alpha-synuclein; 1-copy alpha-synuclein; empty vector control) were each prepared and hybridized in all three combinations (2-copy vs control; 1-copy vs control; 2-copy vs 1-copy) for that time point. For the drug treatment, three yeast samples were grown each with 2-copy alpha-synuclein or an empty vector control, with or without one of six compounds: compound 1 ((4-(3-iodophenyl)-3,4-dihydrobenzo[h]quinolin-2(1H)-one); compound 2 (4-(3-bromophenyl)-3,4-dihydrobenzo[h]quinolin-2(1H)-one); compound 3 (4-(5-bromo-2-fluorophenyl)-6,7-dimethyl-3,4-dihydro-2(1H)-quinolinone); compound 4 (4-(3-bromo-4-fluorophenyl)-6,7-dimethyl-3,4-dihydro-2(1H)-quinolinone); compound 5 (4-(4-ethyl)-6,7-dimethyl-3,4-dihydro-2(1H)-quinolinone); compound 6 ((4R)-6-bromo-4-(4-ethylphenyl)-3,4-dihydrobenzo[h]quinolin-2(1H)-one). 2-color hybridization compared (a) 2-copy vs 2-copy+compound, (b) vector vs vector+compound, or (c) 2-copy+compound vs vector+compound.
