The authors of this study have noticed an error in Figures 3C and 4C of their paper. In Figure 3C, the same image from MDA-MB-231 (Oct3/4) was erroneously used for Hey (Oct3/4). The correct image for Hey (Oct3/4) is now provided. In Figure 4C an image with faint yellow was erroneously used for RFP, the correct image for RFP together with matched eGFP and merged image is now provided. The errors were unintentionally introduced during figure preparation and do not in any way alter the results or conclusions of this study. The authors apologize that these errors were not detected earlier. The corrected Figures 3C and 4C are shown below.
