This PDF file includes:

  • Fig. S1. Acute inhibition of S6K activity is dispensable for lymphocyte growth and proliferation.
  • Fig. S2. Hypomorphic genetic model shows that S6K activity is dispensable for lymphocyte growth and proliferation.
  • Fig. S3. Specific inactivation of mTOR kinase activity in lymphocytes phenocopies complete mTOR or mTORC1 loss in lymphocytes.
  • Fig. S4. Amino acid sequence surrounding the Thr37 phosphoacceptor site on 4E-BP1 and 4E-BP2 is distinct and conserved.
  • Fig. S5. Gene expression patterns of eif4ebp1 and eif4ebp2 are distinct specifically in mature lymphocytes.
  • Fig. S6. Rapamycin partially inhibits eIF4F complex formation in lymphoma cells and MEFs.
  • Fig. S7. Rapamycin has a lesser effect on the proliferation of MEFs than that of MLN0128.
  • Fig. S8. 4E-BP1M can be inducibly expressed in naïve lymphocytes and is sufficient to block growth and proliferation equivalent to rapamycin or TOR-KIs.
  • Fig. S9. 4E-BP1M blocks lymphocyte growth and proliferation in vivo.
  • Fig. S10. 4E-BP1M inhibits only proliferation without affecting size in lymphoma cells.
  • Table S1. Accession numbers for species analyzed.
