This PDF file includes:

  • Fig. S1. STING-dependent activation of IRF3 in L929 cells and in a cell-free assay.
  • Fig. S2. Characterization of the cell-free assay of IRF3 activation by recombinant STING proteins.
  • Fig. S3. NEMO is dispensable for the activation of IRF3 by STING.
  • Fig. S4. Confocal fluorescence microscopy of STING, IRF3, and TBK1 in L929 cells.
  • Fig. S5. Ser366 and Leu374 of STING are required for the phosphorylation of IRF3, but not TBK1, in cell-free assays.
  • Fig. S6. The S366A and L374A STING mutant proteins still form aggregates.
  • Fig. S7. STING is phosphorylated by TBK1 upon stimulation of cells with ISD.
