Correction to: Oncogene, published online 14 February 2011

Following publication of this article, the authors noted Figure 1b incorrectly reported beta-tubulin as the control used for the western blot analysis when beta-actin was used. In addition, in this figure, the control bands of DAOY cells M2.1 and M14 were inadvertently swapped. The corrected figure is shown below.

The authors apologise for the inconvenience caused and confirm this does not have any impact on the interpretation of the results.

The original article has been corrected.
