This PDF file includes:

  • Fig. S1. eEF2K interacts with βTrCP1 and βTrCP2.
  • Fig. S2. Phosphorylation of the eEF2K degron in cells.
  • Fig. S3. βTrCP-mediated ubiquitylation of eEF2K depends on an intact phosphodegron.
  • Fig. S4. eEF2K abundance in response to mitogens and during the cell cycle.
  • Fig. S5. The eEF2K degron is phosphorylated in response to genotoxic stress.
  • Fig. S6. DNA damage–dependent phosphorylation of eEF2 on Thr56 and decreased protein synthesis are mediated by eEF2K.
  • Fig. S7. In vitro autophosphorylation of the eEF2K degron.
  • Fig. S8. AMPK inhibition prevents eEF2K degradation during checkpoint silencing.
  • Fig. S9. Serum starvation, a stimulus that activates AMPK, does not lead to eEF2K degradation.
  • Fig. S10. The kinase-dead eEF2K mutant is not degraded during checkpoint silencing.
  • Fig. S11. Expression of the eEF2K(S441A/S445A) mutant in exponentially growing U2OS cells does not lead to decreased protein synthesis.
