Supplementary Material

Supplementary Figure 1: Schematic of the I-Sce1 EJ5 plasmid reactivation assay. Analysis of the repair products from the EJ5-I-Sce1-based end-joining assay.pimEJ5GFP was linearized using I-Sce1 and incubated with the dialyzed nuclear extracts from the respective cell lines. GFP genes were PCR amplified from the in vitro ligation reaction.

Supplementary Figure 2: Phosphorylated p53 normalization to total p53 protein. Densitometry analysis of the Western blots for measurement of phosphorylated p53Ser15 (p-p53) plotted relative to total p53 (alternate analysis of Fig 3C and Fig 3D), using ImageJ software. Statistical significance of the data was determined using 2-way ANOVA analysis with Bonferroni post-tests to compare the replicates (three-independent experiments).
