Fig. S1. Multiple protein sequence alignment between P. aeruginosa PrmC and various homologues. Protein sequence alignment was created with clustalw2 and visualized with Boxshade 3.31 (Mobyle@Pasteur-v1.0.4). Background colour indicate different residues (white), similar residues (grey) and identical residues (black) in direct comparison with P. aeruginosa PrmC.
Fig. S2. Autoradiogram of PrmC-dependent methylated PrfA. Cell lysates from PA14_prmC pME6032prfA + purified PrmC (1); PA14_prmC pME6032prfA (2); PA14_prmC pME6032 + purified PrmC (3) and PA14_prmC pME6032 (4) were mixed with 0.6 μM [3H-methyl]-SAM and incubated at 37°C for 30 min. Lane 5 shows the PageRuler Prestained Protein Ladder from Thermo Scientific. On the top panel (A) a NuPAGE 10% Bis-Tris gel was used to separate each reaction. The lower panel (B) shows the corresponding autoradiogram illustrating an intensive methylation reaction of PrfA in the presence of PrmC.
