This PDF file includes:

  • Fig. S1. Genomic PCR scheme to genotype Ric-8A– and Ric-8B–deleted mice and derived mES cell lines.
  • Fig. S2. Increased abundance of Gβγ does not rescue the defects in Gα protein abundance observed in Ric-8–/– cells.
  • Fig. S3. Nascent Gαi appears to be differentially modified in Ric-8A–/– and wild-type cells by means other than myristoylation.
  • Fig. S4. Forskolin-stimulated cAMP production is blunted in Ric-8A–/– and Ric-8B–/– cells compared to that in wild-type cells.
