Table S1. The primers used for the manipulation of Ras1 and Ras2 genes in B. bassiana.
Table S2. Primers used to assess the transcript levels of downstream effector genes in the Ras1 and Ras2 mutants of B. bassiana via qRT-PCR.
Fig. S1. Construction and identification of B. bassiana Ras1 and Ras2 mutants.
A. Diagram for Ras2 knockout (see Table S1 for the used primers).
B. PCR detection for the disrupted and complemented Ras2 in the genomic DNAs of wild type (lanes 1 and 4), ΔRas2 (lanes 2 and 5) and ΔRas2/Ras2 (lanes 3 and 6) with paired primers R2id-F/R (lanes 1−3) and Sur2-F/R (lanes 4−6).
C. Southern blotting of Ras2 in the XbaI-digested DNA extracts from wild type (lane 1), ΔRas2 (lanes 2) and ΔRas2/Ras2 (lanes 3) using the probe amplified with R2S-F/R.
D and E. PCR detection for the presence of Ras1 (with partial PgpdA) and sur in the 3-day SDAY colonies of wild type (lane 1), mRas1G19V (lanes 2−4), mRas1D126A (lanes 5−7), mRas1 (lanes 8−10), ΔRas2/Ras1G19V (lanes 11−13), ΔRas2/Ras1D126A (lanes 14−16) and ΔRas2/Ras1 (lanes 17−19) respectively.
