This article has been corrected: In Figure 1, the legend has been amended to show that the β-catenin blots in panel A were re-used in panels D and F as well. The corrected Figure 1 legend is shown below. The authors declare that these corrections do not change the results or conclusions of this paper.

Figure 1: The effect of IGF-I on EMT markers in prostate epithelial cells in altered glucose condition. (A) Western blot image shows the effect of IGF-I and high glucose on mesenchymal markers in PNT2 and DU145 cells. Cells were dosed with IGF-I 100 ng/ml for 48 hours in normal (5 mM) and high (25 mM) glucose serum free media. Equal amounts of extracted proteins were separated by SDS-PAGE, blotted to a nitrocellulose membrane and probed with primary antibodies against E-cadherin, β-catenin, fibronectin, vimentin and GAPDH. GAPDH was used as a loading control. Optical densities of protein blots for (B) PNT2 and (C) DU145 were quantitated using image J and normalised to GAPDH. Western blots showing regulation of p-β-catenin in (D) PNT2 and (F) DU145 cells when treated with 100 ng/ml IGF-I in normal (5 mM) and high (25 mM) glucose serum free media. The β-catenin blots in (D) and (F) were reused from β-catenin blots in (A). Optical densities of protein blots for (E) PNT2 and (G) DU145 were quantitated using image J and normalised to GAPDH. Ratio of normalised total β-catenin: p- β-catenin were measured and used as an indicator of β-catenin activity. The data expressed as fold changes relative to control represent mean+/− SE of triplicate experiments. (H) Western blot showing cytosolic and nuclear fractions of protein separated form whole cells lysate (total protein) from DU145 cells treated or untreated with 100 ng/ml IGF-I for 48 hours in normal (5 mM) and high (25 mM) glucose serum free media. Lamin A/C and tubulin act as nuclear and cytoplasmic loading controls respectively. Results shown are representative of three independent experiments. Data are represented as mean ± SEM.
