Article Title: Mechanisms of AGO4 slicing-enhanced RNA-directed DNA methylation
Figure Legend Snippet: Tests of guide strand 5’ chemical groups and nucleotides in AGO4 loading and slicing A . Cartoon illustrating alternative features of precursors and diced siRNA duplexes. B . Test of AGO4 loading for 24 nt guide RNAs with 5’ monophosphate (P), hydroxyl (OH), or triphosphate (PPP) groups. Input samples are shown in lanes 1-4. RNAs that co-IP with AGO4 are in lanes 5-8. RNAs were subjected to denaturing PAGE, transferred to membranes, and detected by RNA blot hybridization. Controls in lanes 1 and 5 lacked RNA. C . Target RNA slicing programmed by guide siRNAs with different 5’ end modifications. 24 nt guide RNAs with different 5’ groups, paired with a 5’ end-labeled 23 nt target RNA, are shown at the top. The predicted slice site is denoted by a black triangle. The alternative guide RNAs were incubated with or without AGO4 followed by incubation with 32 P-labeled 23 nt target RNA. RNAs were then subjected to denaturing PAGE. An end-labeled 12 nt size marker was run in lane 1. Lane 5 is a control in which AGO4 was included but guide RNA was omitted. D . Test for preferential loading of guide RNAs with different 5’ nucleotides. 24 nt RNAs with each of the four possible nucleotides at their 5’ ends were 32 P-end-labeled and incubated with FLAG-tagged recombinant AGO4. RNAs associated with AGO4 captured on anti-FLAG Dynabeads were resolved by denaturing PAGE (lanes 9-12). In mock IP control reactions (lanes 5-8), AGO4 was omitted. Lanes 1 to 4 show input RNA. See also Supplementary Figure S7 . E . Test of target RNA slicing programmed by guide RNAs with different 5’ nucleotides. The different guide RNAs were incubated with AGO4 (lanes 6 to 9) or without AGO4 (lanes 2 to 5) then incubated with end-labeled 23 nt target RNA. RNAs were then purified, subjected to denaturing PAGE and autoradiography.

Figure Legend Snippet: AGO4 retains sliced target RNAs in vitro and in vivo A . Cartoon of the strategy for testing AGO4 release or retention of sliced target RNAs. B . Test for retention of 23 nt target strand 5’ cleavage products. At the top are sequences of a 24 nt guide RNA with 100% complementarity to the 32 P-labeled target RNA s and a guide RNA with three nucleotides of non-complementarity (highlighted in green) to the target. In the experiment, FLAG-AGO4 immobilized on anti-FLAG Dynabeads was incubated with buffer only (lanes 2 and 3), with the 24 nt guide RNA having perfect complementarity to the target RNA (lanes 4 and 5), or with 24 nt guide RNAs with mismatches to the target RNA (lanes 6 and 7). RNAs in the supernatant (S) and washed bead (B) fractions were purified, subjected to denaturing PAGE and autoradiography. Lane 1 is an anti-FLAG IP control using non-transgenic plants. C . Test for retention of 5’ cleavage products of a 51 nt RNA target. The experiment was conducted as for panel B. D . Both 5’ and 3’ cleavage products of long RNAs are retained by AGO4 in vitro . The experiment was conducted as for panel B except that a body-labeled 54 nt target RNA was used. The expected sizes of its slicing products are 22 and 32 nt. E . Sliced products of RdDM target locus RNAs are retained by AGO4 in vivo . The cartoon shows how 24 nt guide RNAs of variable sequence (orange) would pair with complementary target RNAs. 5’ and 3’ cleavage products are color-coded grey and green respectively. At position 10 of the 3’ slicing products (green fragments), a strong uridine (U) signature is expected due to complementarity to the adenosine (A) at the guide strand 5’ end. The sequence logos below show RNA-seq analyses for RNAs longer than 30 nt that co-IPed with wild-type AGO4 or AGO4-SD. The arrow denotes the position of the expected U signature.

Spectinomycin was added to each culture to a final concentration of 500 μg/ml to block protein synthesis and aliquots were collected at the indicated time points for immunoblotting. The anti-FLAG signal of each sample was normalized to the anti-RpoA signal. Each experiment was performed in triplicates and the representative images are shown. (C) The normalized signal at the time of spectinomycin addition was set as 1 and the change in signal intensity at each time point was plotted for each strain. Error bars represent the standard deviation from triplicate measurements.

Article Title: Archaeal origins of gamete fusion
Figure Legend Snippet: Surface expression of FsxA and mutants. BHK cells were transfected with FLAG-tagged FsxA (WT) and the indicated mutants; the FLAG tag was inserted before the membrane anchor (see Extended Data Fig. 7d). Non-permeabilized staining using anti-FLAG antibody showed surface expression of FsxA and the various mutants. The proportion of non-permeabilized cells showing surface expression was: AFF-1-FLAG (negative control; 0%, n∼1000), FsxA-FLAG (3.9%, n=1242), FsxA-ΔFL→AG 4 A-FLAG (4.4%, n=1176), FsxA-ΔDIV→EFF-1stem-FLAG (2.6%, n=1263). Another group of transfected BHK cells in parallel were fixed, permeabilized and stained with anti-FLAG antibody. Permeabilized staining showed main distribution in the cytoplasm (endoplasmic reticulum) of FsxA and its mutants. C. elegans AFF-1 tagged with FLAG at the C terminus (cytoplasmic tail) worked as a negative control for non-permeabilized staining. Scale Bars, 10 µm.
