This PDF file includes:

  • Fig. S1. The amounts of pERK1/2 proteins in the brains of mnd2 mice are increased compared with those of age-matched wild-type mice.
  • Fig. S2. Omi protein abundance is unaffected by transfection or control siRNA.
  • Fig. S3. The protease activity of Omi is required for the decrease in EGFP-MEK1 abundance.
  • Fig. S4. MEK1 directly interacts with Omi in vitro.
  • Fig. S5. Omi cleaves the substrate β-casein in vitro.
  • Fig. S6. PD98059 blocks the decrease in the abundance of IκBα that is induced by knockdown of Omi.
  • Fig. S7. Analysis of cytokine mRNA abundances in the brains of mnd2 mice.
