HUVECs were obtained from the American Type Culture Collection (CRL-1730:
4
Manassas, VA, USA). The cells were plated in gelatin-coated tissue culture wells and
5
grown in HuMedia-EB2 medium (KE-2350S: Kurabo Industries Ltd., Osaka, Japan)
6
supplemented with 10% fetal bovine serum at 95% O2 and 5% CO2. HUVECs at
7
passages 2 or 3 were used for all experiments.

Measurement of the nitric oxide concentrations in the HUVECs
10
HUVECs were incubated in phenol red-free medium without serum for 12
11
hours and in the presence or absence of 200 μmol/l of bezafibrate (B7273:
12
Sigma-Aldrich, St. Louis, MO, USA) for two hours. The cells were then cultured in the
13
presence or absence of 100 μmol/l of carboplatin (C2538: Sigma-Aldrich) or 10 nmol/l
14
of paclitaxel (T7402: Sigma-Aldrich) for two hours prior to stimulation with 1 mol/l of
15
A23187 (A7522: Sigma-Aldrich) for 10 minutes. The cell culture medium was collected
16
and used to determine the level of nitric oxide (NO) production using the Nitric Oxide
17
Quantitation Kit (#40020: Active Motif, Carlsbad, CA, USA) according to the
18
manufacturer’s instructions.

Measurement of the PPARα DNA binding activity in the HUVECs
3
HUVECs were incubated in phenol red-free medium without serum for 12 hours, and in
4
the presence or absence of 100 μmol/l of bezafibrate for 24 hours. The cells were then
5
cultured in the presence or absence of 100 μmol/l of carboplatin (CBDCA) or 10 nmol/l
6
of paclitaxel (PTX) for 24 hours. The cell nuclear fraction was collected using a Nuclear
7
Extraction Kit according to the manufacturer’s protocol (#10009277: Cayman Chemical
8
Company, Michigan, USA) and was employed to determine the PPARα DNA binding
9
activity using a PPARα Transcription Factor Assay Kit (#10006915: Cayman Chemical
10
Company) according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
