Figure S1 - Identification of protein arginine methyltransferase (PRMT)1 as a histone H2A methyltransferase, using nanoscale liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry (MS). The two fractions (numbers 4 and 6) from the heparin column (Figure 1B) containing methyltransferase activity towards histone H2A 4-129 were analysed by MS as described (see Additional file 6, supplementary methods). Only proteins with two unique peptides possessing a total Mascot score of >54 were considered to be significant, and these were used for MS3 scoring in MSQuant software ( webcite). PRMT1 was found in both heparin fractions. IPI and Uniprot accession numbers for PRMT1 are listed.
