This PDF file includes:

  • Fig. S1. Blockade of autophagosome maturation synergizes with inhibition of PI3K and mTOR to induce apoptosis in PTENmt glioma.
  • Fig. S2. PI-103 induces apoptosis in Atg5 mutant mouse embryo fibroblasts.
  • Fig. S3. Apoptosis in response to inhibition of mTOR and autophagy requires concomitant blockade of signaling through PI3K/Akt.
  • Fig. S4. Blockade of LAMP2 and Vps34 synergizes with inhibition of PI3K and mTOR to induce apoptosis in U373 PTENmt glioma.
  • Fig. S5. The ATP-competitive mTOR inhibitor Ku-0063794 induces autophagy more potently than does the allosteric mTORC1 inhibitor rapamycin and the PI3Kα inhibitor PIK-90 in PTENmt glioma.
