    Detection of cccDNA and validation of Myrcludex B in 96-well plate format. (A) HepG2 hNTCP cells seeded in a 96-well plate were infected at an mge/cell of 1,000. Myrcludex B was coadministered, tenofovir was added postinoculation, and IFN-α-2a was applied during and after infection. (B) Cells were treated with each antiviral at eight doses (1:3.2 serial dilutions) in triplicates. (C) On day 7 p.i., DNA samples were extracted together using a vacuum-based system. Crude DNA in 100 μl of elute was ethanol precipitated and resuspended with 10 μl of water. T5 Exo digestion was performed prior to cccDNA quantification by PCR. HBeAg levels during days 5 to 7 p.i. in the supernatant in all wells were measured.

    Lesion-containing construct quality controls. (A) Schematic of the Fpg nicking assay. Fpg cleaves damages, such as 8-oxoG and 5-OHU, leaving a single-strand break, converting the construct from covalently closed (cc) to nicked form. (B) Lesion structures. (C) Representative images of Fpg and Nth nicked T5 exonuclease-treated lesion-containing and lesion-free control constructs. Fpg cleaves 8-oxoG, 5-OHU, and DHU, nicking the lesion-containing constructs almost entirely, but not the lesion-free controls, and Nth cleaves DHU.

    Optimizations for second strand synthesis. (A) Schematic of the second strand synthesis procedure. Synthetic 5’ phosphorylated ODNs containing the lesion of interest are annealed to phagemid single-stranded DNA, complimentary strands are synthesised by T4 DNA polymerase, and ligated by T4 DNA ligase. (B) Second strand synthesis of HRAS construct using ssDNA purified by silica spin columns or anion-exchange columns. ssDNA purified by anion-exchange column produces high yields of covalently closed product. (C) Schematic of the alkaline gel analysis of the construct nicks positions. Double-digest of pcDNA3.1(+)-HRAS with SmaI and NdeI produces two fragments (labelled 1 and 2). If the synthetic ODN that becomes part of the transcribed strand is not ligated, the transcribed strand fragment 2 produces two smaller fragments (3 and 4). (D) Alkaline gel analysis of HRAS constructs. Negative control HRAS WT T5 exonuclease (T5 exo) treated, covalently closed construct produces only two bands and positive control Fpg nicked HRAS 8-oxoG constructs, treated and not treated with T5 exonuclease, produce the expected four bands. The anion-exchange purified HRAS WT construct produces only two bands, indicating the nicks following second strand synthesis occur at random positions.
