Correction to: Nature Published online 17 August 2022

In the version of this article initially published, in the legend for Fig. 3c, WSP-1 was erroneously denoted as magenta and F-actin as green. The corrected text now reads “Thick lines indicate the measured WSP-1 (green) and F-actin (magenta) nullclines”. In addition, in the x-axis label of Fig. 4d, “Lifeact” erroneously appeared as “Lifetime”. The corrected label now reads “Lifeact concentration (IU μm–3)”. The errors have been corrected in the HTML and PDF versions of the article.
