This PDF file includes:

  • Materials and Methods
  • Fig. S1. Analysis of p110 and p85 protein abundance in p110 mutant mice.
  • Fig. S2. βKD BMNs are defective in their ability to produce ROS in response to ICs.
  • Fig. S3. The PI3Kδ inhibitor, IC87114, and the PI3Kγ inhibitor, AS605240, exhibit off-target activities in IC-mediated mouse BMN responses.
  • Fig. S4. Inhibition of p110β does not affect the surface expression of FcγR or β2 integrin on resting or stimulated neutrophils.
  • Fig. S5. Lack of p110β activity does not markedly affect BMN adhesion or spreading on ICs.
  • Fig. S6. PI3Kβ, but not PI3Kδ or PI3Kγ, activity is required for ROS production by BMNs in response to adhesion to integrin ligands.
  • Fig. S7. Normal rabbit anti-mcVII-IgG and C3 deposition in mouse skin, and serum IgG amounts in wild-type and βKO mice.
  • Fig. S8. Skin blistering in βKO mouse skin upon local reconstitution with wild-type mouse neutrophils.
  • Fig. S9. PI3Kβ is important in promoting ROS formation in response to autoimmune sera from EBA patients.
  • Fig. S10. Immunoreactivity of normal human or EBA patient sera toward recombinant human collagen VII (hcVII) as assessed by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA).
  • Fig. S11. Combined deficiency of p110β and p110δ activities confers substantial protection from arthritic symptoms in the K/BxN model of autoimmune arthritis.
  • Fig. S12. Combined deficiency of p110β and p110δ activities confers substantial protection from joint swelling in the K/BxN model of autoimmune arthritis.
  • Fig. S13. Normal Akt phosphorylation and antibody production in mice with lymphocytic deletion of p110β.
  • Fig. S14. LTB4-dependent ROS production and Akt phosphorylation in BMNs.
  • Fig. S15. PI3Kβ is cooperatively engaged by FcγRs and the GPCR, BLT1, to drive sustained neutrophil responses.
  • Table S1. Hematological analysis of βKO mouse peripheral blood.
  • Table S2. Isoforms of p110 identified in p85 immunoprecipitates by mass spectrometry.
