    1. Oligonucleotides used for generation of C. glabratadeletion strains, for cloning and for quantitative Real time Polymerase Chain Reaction (qPCR)were commercially synthesized either at MWG Biotech Pvt. Limited, Bangalore, India or at Xcelris genomics Pvt. Limited, Ahemdabad, India. All the oligonucleotides used were designed by using freely available online tool Primer 3 plus (http://www.bioinformatics.nl/cgi-bin/primer3plus/primer3plus.cgi/) and are listed in Table 2.3
    2. Oligonucleotides
    1. Celllines
    2. The cell lines used in the study are mouse embryonic fibroblasts (MEFs) derived from wild type (WT) and Ip6k1knockout mouse embryos. The MEFs were immortalized with SV40 large T antigen (Bhandariet al., 2008)and single cell derived lines were generated in the lab. Ip6k1knockout MEFs display 70% lower levels of IP7compared with wild type MEFs (Bhandariet al., 2008). Ip6k1-/-MEFs expressing kinase active or inactive forms of IP6K1 were generated in the lab (Rescue MEFs). MEFs were maintained in Dulbecco’s modified Eagle’s medium (DMEM, Life Technologies) supplemented with 10% fetal bovine serum (FBS, Life Technologies), 1 mM L-Glutamine (Life Technologies), 100U/mL penicillin, and 100 μg/mL streptomycin (Life Technologies).Rescue MEFs were cultured in complete DMEM supplemented with G418 (200 μg/mL) as selection marker. HCT116 (colon cancer cells, a gift from Dr. Sagar Sengupta, NII, New Delhi) or HeLa (cervical cancer cells) expressing non-targeting control and shRNA against human IP6K1were cultured in complete DMEM containing puromycin (2μg/mL). The amphotropic Phoenix cells (a gift from Dr. Shweta Tyagi, CDFD, Hyderabad) and HEK293T packaging cells were usedfor generating lentiviral particles containing shRNA against human IP6K1or mouse Ip6k2and were maintained in complete DMEM
