This PDF file includes:

  • Fig. S1. The generation of the stet1A3 mutant.
  • Fig. S2. stet functions in the germ line and is involved in the generation of multiple
    EGFR ligands.
  • Fig. S3. EGFR functions through the MAPK but not the PI3K or PLC-γ pathway.
  • Fig. S4. pERK is expressed in ESCs and ECs.
  • Fig. S5. stet1A3 mutant germarium exhibits non–cell autonomous defects.
  • Fig. S6. stet is required in GSCs for germline homeostasis.
  • Fig. S7. pMad expression domain is expanded in stet1A3 germaria.
  • Fig. S8. Dad-lacZ expression domain is expanded in EGFR-MAPK germaria.
  • Fig. S9. dpp transcripts are detected in wild-type and stet1A3 germaria.
  • Fig. S10. DPP functions in the niche.
  • Fig. S11. dally mRNA is detected in wild-type and EGFR-MAPK germaria.
  • Fig. S12. A model.
  • Fig. S13. Defective cellular extension is not sufficient for expanded DPP function
    outside the niche.
  • Fig. S14. Germaria with ectopic Hh or Wg expression do not exhibit the formation of
    ectopic spectrosome-containing cells.
  • Fig. S15. Conditional removal of DPP from the niche suppresses the stet1A3 mutant
