  • Materials and Methods
  • Fig. S1. α6 integrin is predominantly expressed by cytokeratin 5 (CK5)–positive basal prostatic epithelial cells.
  • Fig. S2. Residual PIN-affected glands in Ptenpc-/-;mTorpc-/- mice arise from Pten- recombined cells that have escaped mTor recombination.
  • Fig. S3. Deletion of mTor in MEFs.
