Description of Results: We observed that overexpression of RHA leads to enhanced p53 IRES activity under normal growth conditions (Figure S1A). However, in contrast to overexpression of TCP80 (Fig. 1B), overexpression of RHA cannot lead to a further increase in p53 IRES activity following DNA damage (Figure S1B).
