Supplementary Figure Legends

Supplementary Figure S1: Western blot assays of endogenous CREB, P-CREB, and

TORC2 in liver extracts from mice 10 minutes after injection with glucagon, insulin,

insulin+glucose, or insulin+glucagon, as indicated. Ser171 dephosphorylation of TORC2

in lanes 4 and 5 indicated by enhanced mobility relative to lanes 1-3.

Supplementary Figure S2: Western blot assays of endogenous TORC2 and CREB in

liver extracts from mice (n=2) following a 4 hour-fast or under ad libitium feeding. P-

TORC2 and unphospho (TORC2) bands indicated.

Supplementary Figure S3: Effect of FSK on P-CREB (P-CR) and CBP levels over

gluconeogenic promoters by ChIP assay of rat FAO hepatocytes.

Supplementary Figure S4: Effect of TORC2 and dominant negative A-CREB (AC)

adenoviruses on induction of gluconeogenic G6Pase gene by FSK (10M, 2hr) in

cultured primary rat hepatocytes. Data represent mean + s.e.m.

Supplementary Figure S5: Glucose output from primary rat hepatocytes infected with

Ad-TORC2 or control GFP virus and treated with FSK, FSK/INS, or INS alone, as
indicated. Glucose levels in the medium were measured over a 4 hour collection period.

Data represent mean + s.e.m.

Supplementary Figure S6: Right, plasma insulin levels in Ad-TORC2 or control Ad-

GFP injected mice under fasting conditions (24 hour fast; n=4). Data represent mean +

s.e.m. (asterisk, p<0.01, t-test).

hepatocytes. Effect of CHX on SIK1 protein levels shown.

CREB), or control (empty) expression vector on mSIK1(-425/+76) luciferase reporter

activity in transiently transfected HepG2 hepatocytes. Data represent mean + s.e.m.

Supplementary Figure S9: Effect of SIK1 RNAi adenovirus infection on levels of

phospho (Ser171) TORC2 and unphosphorylated TORC2 in primary rat hepatocytes.

HA-tagged TORC2 expressing adenovirus.

Supplementary Figure S11: Effect of SIK1 over-expression on activity of TORC2 (left)

and PGC-1 (right) in HepG2 cells. Transient transfection assay of PEPCK (left) and

AOX (right) luciferase reporter plasmids co-transfected with SIK1, TORC2, or PGC-1

expression vectors as indicated. Effect of FSK treatment (10M, 4 hours) shown. Data

represent mean + s.e.m.

Supplementary Figure S12: Circulating levels of insulin in SIK1, SIK2, or control GFP

Adenovirus injected mice under fasting conditions (16 hour fast). Data represent mean +

s.e.m. (asterisk, p<0.05, t-test).

Supplementary Figure S13: Effect of Ad-SIK1, Ad-SIK2, and control Ad-GFP on

fasting glucose levels in db/db diabetic mice (asterisk, p<0.05, t-test) (n=4).

Supplementary Figure S14: SIK1 does not modulate insulin signaling in livers of

diabetic db/db mice. Effect of Ad-SIK1 and Ad-SIK2 on AKT activation 10 minutes

following acute IP insulin injection. Western blot analysis of liver extracts showing
SIK1, SIK2, AKT, and phospho (Ser473)AKT (P-Akt) levels under control (PBS) and

insulin injected conditions (top). Densitometric quantitation of p-Akt/Akt ratios shown
