This PDF file includes:

  • Fig. S1. MTA increases ERK1/2 phosphorylation in response to HGF in primary rat hepatocytes.
  • Fig. S2. Modulation of HGF induced MEK1/2-ERK1/2 signaling by MTA in melanoma cells.
  • Fig. S3. MTA modulates ERK1/2 phosphorylation upon specific growth factor treatment in human cells, and protein methylation inhibition modulates ERK1/2 signal amplitude in response to HGF.
  • Fig. S4. PRMT1, PRMT3, and PRMT8 are not responsible for the MTA-mediated effect.
  • Fig. S5. MTA signal amplitude modulation of ERK1/2 is RAS activation–dependent.
  • Fig. S6. CRAF and BRAF immunoprecipitate and colocalize with PRMT5 in the cytoplasm.
  • Fig. S7. MTA regulates growth factor–induced BRAF kinase activity.
  • Fig. S8. Differential activation of RAF isoforms by growth factors.
  • Fig. S9. MTA treatment inhibits CRAF degradation in SKMel147 cells.
  • Fig. S10. BRAFR671K mutant shows the same response as CRAFR563K. ARAF stability is not regulated by MTA in SKMel147 cells.
  • Fig. S11. A small fraction of total CRAF is recruited to the membrane in response to growth factor signaling. Detection by MALDI of both the unmethylated and the methylated CRAF peptides.
  • Fig. S12. BRAF is in vivo methylated. BRAFR671K mutant mimics the MTA-induced effects on PC12 cells.
  • Fig. S13. PC12 differentiation assay.
