|Figure S3, related to Figure 1 and S2: Mass spectrometry identification of putative regulatory residues in M18BP1 CENP-A nucleosome binding domain A) Flag-M18BP1-2747-944 or MBP-Flag-M18BP1-2747-944 binding to CENP-A chromatin was assayed in metaphase-arrested and interphase Xenopus egg extract. The MBP tag did not affect metaphase inhibition of CENP-A nucleosome binding, although it did prevent some CENP-A nucleosome binding in interphase. Values are normalized to Flag-M18BP1-2747-944 binding in interphase extract. B) Coomassie gel of MBP-M18BP1-2747-944 immunoprecipitated from metaphase-arrested Xenopus egg extract with anti-MBP. The boxed band was submitted for mass spectrometry analysis for post-translational modifications. C) Table displaying all phosphorylation events found on M18BP1-2747-944 by mass spectrometry after incubation of MBP-M18BP1-2747-944 in metaphase egg extracts. Green highlighting indicates the phosphorylated residue forms a minimal Cdk consensus motif (S/T-P). Estimated abundance of each modification is indicated. D) Translated full-length M18BP1-2 containing mutations in modification site residues were assayed for in vitro binding to CENP-A chromatin by immunofluorescence. Values are normalized to wild-type M18BP1-2 signal on CENP-A beads. Plot shows the mean ± SEM of at least three experiments. E) Representative anti-Flag Western blots of reactions from D showing equivalent translation of all Flag-M18BP1-2 mutants.|
