This PDF file includes:

  • Methods
  • Fig. S1. Phosphorylation of the P2 or P1′ residue prevents cleavage by caspases.
  • Fig. S2. Phosphorylation of procaspase-3 by CK2 results in its protection from caspase-mediated cleavage.
  • Fig. S3. Mass spectrometric determination of the phosphorylation site of caspase-3.
  • Fig. S4. Phosphorylation of procaspase-3 at Thr174 and Ser176 protects it from caspase-mediated cleavage.
  • Table S3. Proteins identified in the peptide match search that have overlapping CK2 and caspase recognition motifs that are cleaved by caspases in cells.
  • Table S4. Proteins identified from the peptide match screen that have overlapping CK2 and caspase recognition motifs and were previously identified to be phosphorylated in cells.
  • Table S6. Identification of candidate CK2 and caspase peptide sequences that are sensitive to cleavage by caspases.
