    Mus81 is required for eccDNA formation in old and young cells. (A) Southern blot analysis of CUP1 eccDNA and rDNA-derived ERCs in wild-type, mus81 Δ, yen1 Δ, and slx4 Δ cells aged for 24 hours in the presence or absence of 1 mM CuSO 4 , performed as in Fig 1B . (B) Quantification of CUP1 eccDNA and rDNA-derived ERCs in wild-type and mus81 Δ cells aged for 24 hours in the presence or absence of 1 mM CuSO 4 , performed and analysed as in Fig 1B , n = 4. (C) REC-seq analysis of mus81 Δ cells compared to wild type in the absence (left) or presence (right) of 1 mM CuSO 4 . Experiment and analysis as in Fig 4D . (D) Southern blot analysis of eccDNA from the 17 copy P GAL1 -3HA cup1 tandem repeat in non–age-selected BY4741 haploid cell background lacking MEP modifications. P GAL1 -3HA wild-type, sae2 Δ, and mus81 Δ cells were pregrown on YP Raffinose before a 6 hour induction with 2% galactose or 2% glucose. Genomic DNA was digested with Xho I; then 95% of the sample was further digested with ExoV and ExoI; 5% total DNA (lanes 1–6) and 95% ExoV digested material (lanes 7–12) are shown. These cells contain an additional pRS316- CUP1 plasmid to complement the loss of active chromosomal CUP1 genes, labelled as CUP1 plasmid. This plasmid contains an Xho I site and is hence linearised by Xho I and degraded by ExoV. Signals from same membrane stripped and reprobed for rDNA show ERC species. Abundances of eccDNA and ERCs were compared by one-way ANOVA; n = 4 biological replicates; data were log transformed for testing to fulfil the assumptions of a parametric test. (E) Colony formation assay performed on P GAL1 -3HA wild-type and rad52 Δ cells along with BY4741 wild-type and rad52 Δ controls. Cells were pregrown as above on YP raffinose, then serial dilutions from 10 4 to 10 1 cells spotted on YPD and YPGal plates, which were grown at 30°C until control cells had formed equivalent sized colonies (2–3 days). The data underlying this figure may be found in S1 Data and S1 Raw Images . eccDNA, extrachromosomal circular DNA; ERC, extrachromosomal ribosomal DNA circle; ExoV, exonuclease V; rDNA, ribosomal DNA; REC-seq, restriction-digested extrachromosomal circular DNA sequencing.

    Quality control of the TGW validation library. ( A ) Gel electrophoresis visualizing the quality of P1 and P2 preparations of the TGW validation library (4,232 gRNAs). Please note the absence of the 3-kb DNA fragment in the final (P2) validation library. ( B ) The distributions of the TGW validation library P1 and P2 preparations visualized as Lorenz curves. The pre-I-SceI-digested library (P1) and the post-I-SceI-digested library (P2) have similar gRNA distributions. The low area under the curve (AUC) values of 0.65 (P1) and 0.64 (P2) indicate that the I-SceI clean-up digestion does not affect the distribution of gRNAs in the final product.

    Schematic overview of droplet Tn-Seq. a A microfluidic device encapsulates single bacterial cells into droplets containing growth medium. Bacteria are allowed to grow within droplets, genomic DNA (gDNA) is isolated at the start of the experiment (t1) and after growth (t2). Importantly, while growth for each transposon mutant takes place in isolation, gDNA is isolated from the pooled population, enabling screening of all mutants simultaneously. b gDNA is then amplified with DNA polymerase phi29, digested with MmeI, an adapter is ligated, a ~180 bp fragment is produced which contains ~16 nucleotides of bacterial gDNA, defining the transposon-insertion location, followed by Illumina sequencing. Reads are demultiplexed based on the barcode in the adapter and a potential second barcode in primer 1, mapped to the genome, and fitness is calculated for each defined region.

    Exo I III versus Exo T5 digestion of HBV core and PF DNA. (A) Diagrams showing expected results of digestion with various HBV PF DNA species. Left, structures of known and potential HBV PF DNA species; middle and right, expected digestion products of the various DNA species. The DNA species in the rectangular box, with a covalently closed minus strand and an open plus strand, represents a potential intermediate during RC DNA to CCC DNA conversion that was identified in the current study (see the text for details). The black dot at the 5′ end of the minus strand of the PF-RC and PF-DSL DNA denotes the unknown modification of this end upon removal of the RT protein (deproteination; see the text for details). (B and C) HBV core DNA (0.3 μl) combined with mock PF DNA (20 μl) extracted from uninduced HepAD38 cells (B) or PF DNA (20 μl) extracted from induced HepAD38 cells (C) was treated with Exo I III (5 units and 25 units, respectively) (lanes 3 and 10) or Exo T5 (5 units) (lanes 6 and 13) in 1× NEB CutSmart buffer. Subsequently, MfeI-HF (10 units) was used to linearize CCC DNA (lanes 5, 7, 12, and 14) and Exo T5 (5 units) was used to digest the SS circular DNA (lanes 4 and 11). Heat treatment (95°C, 10 min) was used to denature RC DNA to SS linear DNA (lanes 2 and 9). The DNA samples were then resolved on an agarose gel, and the various HBV DNA species were detected by Southern blotting using a riboprobe specific for the plus-strand (lanes 1 to 7) or minus-strand (lanes 8 to 14) DNA. The diagrams on the sides depict the various DNA species and their migration on the gel. The positions of the various RC DNA species, CCC DNA species, and SS linear and circular DNA species are indicated by the schematic diagrams. Note that the linearized CCC DNA comigrates with the DSL DNA, a minor form present in both core DNA and PF DNA (lanes 1 and 8).

The short line intersecting the circle denotes the site of BmgBI digestion (A) or Nt.BbvCI nicking (D). The presence of the RNA (short gray line) at the 5′ end of the plus strand in RC DNA prevents BmgBI digestion (panel A; arrow blocked by a short line). The black dot at the 5′ end of the minus strand of the PF-RC DNA denotes the unknown modification of this end upon removal of the RT protein. The DNA species indicated in the rectangular box, with a covalently closed minus strand and an open plus strand, represents a potential intermediate during RC DNA to CCC DNA conversion that was identified in this study (see the text for details). (B and C) HBV core DNA (0.3 μl) combined with mock PF DNA (20 μl) extracted from uninduced HepAD38 cells (lanes 1 to 3) or PF DNA (lanes 4 to 6) extracted from induced HepAD38 cells was treated with BmgBI (5 units) in 1× NEB buffer 3 to linearize all supercoiled and nicked CCC DNA (lanes 2, 3, 5, and 6) or was mock treated (lanes 1 and 4). For lanes 3 and 6, the DNA samples were further digested with Exo I III after BmgBI treatment. The samples were then resolved on an agarose gel, and various HBV DNA species were detected by Southern blotting using a riboprobe specific for the viral plus-strand (B) or minus-strand (C) DNA. The diagrams on the right of panel C depict the various DNA species and their migration on the gel. (E) PF DNA extracted from induced HepAD38 cells was treated with Nt.BbvCI (5 units) in 1× NEB Cutsmart buffer to nick all CCC DNA (lanes 3, 4, 7, and 8) or mock treated (lanes 1 and 5).

The samples were then resolved on an agarose gel, and various HBV DNA species were detected by Southern blotting using a riboprobe specific for the viral plus-strand (lanes 1 to 4) or minus-strand (lanes 5 to 8) DNA. The diagrams on the right depict the various DNA species and their migration on the gel. Marker, the DNA marker lane. The size of the DNA markers is indicated (in kilobase pairs). The blank spaces between the lanes in panels B, C, and E indicate where other lanes from the same gel that were deemed nonessential for this work were cropped out during the preparation of the figure.

    Exo I III versus Exo T5 digestion of plasmid DNA. (A) Diagrams showing expected digestion results of various plasmid DNA species. A break in the circle denotes the nick on the DNA strand. (B and C) Plasmid pCI-HBc (2.5 ng) was mixed with 20 μl of mock PF DNA extracted from uninduced HepAD38 cells. The DNA mix was first treated with Nb.BbvCI (5 units) to nick the plasmid DNA specifically on the minus strand (B and C, lanes 5 to 8) or was left untreated (B and C, lanes 1 to 4) before digestion with Exo I III (5 units and 25 units, respectively) in two different buffers or with Exo T5 (5 units). The DNA samples were then resolved on an agarose gel, and HBc DNA was detected by Southern blotting using a riboprobe specific for the viral plus-strand (B) or minus-strand (C) DNA. The diagrams on the right of panel C depict the various DNA species and their migration on the gel. B3, 1× NEB buffer 3; BCS, 1× NEB buffer Cutsmart; PE, phenol extraction.

    Exo I III versus Exo T5 digestion of HBV core and PF DNA. (A) Diagrams showing expected results of digestion with various HBV PF DNA species. Left, structures of known and potential HBV PF DNA species; middle and right, expected digestion products of the various DNA species. The DNA species in the rectangular box, with a covalently closed minus strand and an open plus strand, represents a potential intermediate during RC DNA to CCC DNA conversion that was identified in the current study (see the text for details). The black dot at the 5′ end of the minus strand of the PF-RC and PF-DSL DNA denotes the unknown modification of this end upon removal of the RT protein (deproteination; see the text for details). (B and C) HBV core DNA (0.3 μl) combined with mock PF DNA (20 μl) extracted from uninduced HepAD38 cells (B) or PF DNA (20 μl) extracted from induced HepAD38 cells (C) was treated with Exo I III (5 units and 25 units, respectively) (lanes 3 and 10) or Exo T5 (5 units) (lanes 6 and 13) in 1× NEB CutSmart buffer. Subsequently, MfeI-HF (10 units) was used to linearize CCC DNA (lanes 5, 7, 12, and 14) and Exo T5 (5 units) was used to digest the SS circular DNA (lanes 4 and 11). Heat treatment (95°C, 10 min) was used to denature RC DNA to SS linear DNA (lanes 2 and 9). The DNA samples were then resolved on an agarose gel, and the various HBV DNA species were detected by Southern blotting using a riboprobe specific for the plus-strand (lanes 1 to 7) or minus-strand (lanes 8 to 14) DNA. The diagrams on the sides depict the various DNA species and their migration on the gel. The positions of the various RC DNA species, CCC DNA species, and SS linear and circular DNA species are indicated by the schematic diagrams. Note that the linearized CCC DNA comigrates with the DSL DNA, a minor form present in both core DNA and PF DNA (lanes 1 and 8).
