ZEB1 is a protein of 1124 amino acids with a predicted relative molecular mass ∼124K. However, in Supplementary Fig. S5 (corresponding to Fig. 4a) of our manuscript, the uncropped image of the ZEB1 immunoblot shows two bands with a relative molecular mass of 200K and 125K, respectively. Two major ZEB1 signals (Mr 124K and 200K) have been observed in western blots when using different antibodies in various cell types (please see references 1,2,3,4 below). Therefore, to examine whether the bands observed in our study represent ZEB1, we knocked down ZEB1 in MCF12A control and p53R175H mutant cells using shRNA (Fig. 1a) and siRNA (Fig. 1b). As shown in the figure to the right, both of the bands are diminished by knockdown of ZEB1, indicating that these bands are ZEB1.
