|SC_11-1232_sm_S1.mov||3861K||Supplemental Movie 1. Time-lapse imaging of control (red) and Vangl2 KD (green) NPCs migrating in the RMS, recorded at 5-minute intervals for 250 minutes. Time-lapse video recordings were obtained using an inverted Zeiss confocal microscope, LSM5 PASCAL or LSM710, equipped with a stage-top microscope incubator, INU-ZI-F1 (5% CO2 at 37°C; Tokai Hit, Shizuoka, Japan), at low magnification, with a 10× dry objective. Optical Z sections (7–12 in 10-μm Z-steps) were acquired every 5 min over a period of 6 h, and all of the focal planes (70–120 μm depth) were merged. See also Supplemental Fig. 4.|

Coronal sections through the SVZ (A, D), RMS (B, E), and OB (C, F) stained with antibodies for Vangl2 (red in A-C) or Dvl2 (red in D-F), in combination with Dcx (green) or GFAP (blue), in the SVZ (A, D) and RMS (B, E), or with NeuN (green) in the OB (C, F). CC, corpus callosum. (A′, B′, D′, E′) Higher magnification of the boxed regions in (A, B, D, E). Scale bar: A, B, D, E, 50 μm; C, F, 10 μm.|

|SC_11-1232_sm_supplFigure3.pdf||67K||Supplemental Fig. 3. Knockdown verification. HEK293T cells were cotransfected with vectors expressing both Flag-tagged Vangl2 and an miRNA against either luciferase (as a negative control, CT) or Vangl2 (KD), and the cell extracts were subjected to Western blotting analysis with antibodies to Flag or β-actin (a loading control).|
|SC_11-1232_sm_supplFigure4.tif||124K||Supplemental Fig. 4. Supplemental information related to Supplemental Movie 1. (A) Migration speed (control, 139.8 ± 7.2 μm/h, n=28 cells from 3 mice; Vangl2 KD, 112.5 ± 5.9 μm/h, n=23 cells from 3 mice; P = 0.0067). (B-C) Directionality. (B) The NPCs were classified into rostrally migrating (arrow with circle) or non-rostrally migrating (arrows) groups based on the positions of the cell body before and after 1 h in culture. (C) The percentage of rostrally migrating Vangl2 KD NPCs was significantly lower than that of control NPCs (control, 61.0 ± 3.6%, n=95 cells from 3 mice; Vangl2 KD, 42.4 ± 5.0%, n=133 cells from 3 mice; P = 0.0398).|

(E) The percentages of GFP-Mash1 double-positive transit-amplifying cells (control, 11.2 ± 2.7%, n= 155 cells from 3 mice; Dvl2-C, 16.4 ± 3.1%, n= 128 cells from 3 mice; P = 0.824) and GFP-Dcx double-positive NPCs (control, 72.6 ± 3.7%, n=3; Dvl2-C, 65.1 ± 4.8%, n=3; P = 0.782) were not altered by Dvl2ΔPDZ. (F) The percentage of mitotic cells was not altered by Dvl2ΔPDZ (control, 2.4 ± 0.7%, n= 122 cells from 3 mice; Dvl2-C, 2.1 ± 1.1%, n= 92 cells from 3 mice; P = 0.651). Scale bar: A-D, 10 μm.|
