This PDF file includes:

  • Fig. S1. Autophagy is induced by H5N1 infection of mouse lungs and A549 cells.
  • Fig. S2. LC3 puncta occur in H5N1-infected A549 cells and decrease in abundance upon treatment with TSC2-specific siRNA.
  • Fig. S3. Autophagic death of A549 cells induced by H5N1 infection is substantially rescued by Atg6-specific siRNA.
  • Fig. S4. The production of proinflammatory cytokines by H5N1 infection is not altered by Atg5-specific siRNA.
  • Fig. S5. The increased immune response induced by H5N1 infection is not altered by Atg5-specific siRNA.
  • Fig. S6. Mouse model of acute lung injury induced by infection with live H5N1 virus.
  • Fig. S7. Acute lung injury in mice induced by live H5N1 virus was ameliorated by Atg6-specific siRNA.
  • Fig. S8. Acute lung injury in mice induced by live H5N1 virus was not ameliorated by the selective inhibitors of apoptosis or necrosis.
  • Fig. S9. Mice infected by H1N1 virus and treated with Atg5-specific siRNA do not develop acute lung injury.
  • Fig. S10. Rag1 knockout mice develop acute lung injury induced by H5N1 virus.
  • Fig. S11. The HA protein of H5N1 virus may induce autophagy in human A549 cells.
