  • Fig. S1. Dendrogram showing the evolutionary relationship of members of the rice CIPK family and other Snf1-related protein kinases from rice, mammals and yeast.
  • Fig. S2. Genotyping identified two allelic Tos17-tagged CIPK homozygous (�/�) and heterozygous (+/�) Nipponbare rice mutants.
  • Fig. S3. Amino acid sequence of CIPK15 closely resembles that of the rice SnRK1A, mammalian AMPKα1 and yeast Snf1 protein kinases.
  • Fig. S4. Amino acid sequence of CIPK15 resembles that of protein kinases upstream of SNF1 and AMPK.
  • Fig. S5. Sucrose rescues underwater seedling shoot development in the cipk15 mutant.
  • Fig. S6. CIPK15 controls underwater root development.
  • Fig. S7. CIPK15 control mature plant growth under partially-flooded conditions.
  • Fig. S8. Seedling hypoxia tolerance varies among rice varieties.
  • Fig. S9. ATP is consumed more slowly in WT and cipk15 embryos germinated under water than in air.
  • Table S1. The IRRI Germplasm Center (IRGC) accession number of rice germplasms used in the present study.
  • Table S2. Primers used in the present study.
