  • Fig. S1. Nuclear SREBP-1 staining in 12 control GBM patients.
  • Fig. S2. Effect of PTEN on SREBP-1.
  • Fig. S3. Proliferation rates of GBMs (T98, LN229, U373, U138, U87) and epidermoid carcinoma cell line (A431).
  • Fig. S4. Effect of 25-hydroxycholesterol (25-HC) on SREBP-1 cleavage and ACC and FAS abundance.
  • Fig. S5. Inhibition of mTORC1 signaling with rapamycin does not prevent SREBP-1 cleavage in cancer cells with highly abundant EGFR.
  • Fig. S6. p-PDGFR and p-Met are also associated with p-Akt and nuclear SREBP-1 staining in glioblastoma tissue microarrays and Met activation can promote SREBP-1 cleavage in glioblastoma cells in vitro.
  • Fig. S7. Effect of 25-hydroxycholesterol (25-HC) on tumor viability.
  • Fig. S8. Lipogenesis inhibitors induce cell death in other cancer types with abundant EGFR.
  • Fig. S9. Analysis of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) cleavage confirms that inhibitors of lipogenesis promote apoptotic cell death.
  • Fig. S10. Effect of PTEN reconstitution on cellular response to 25-HC.
  • Fig. S11. Palmitate, a product of FAS, significantly rescues C75-mediated cell death.
  • Fig. S12. Effects of atorvastatin and C75 on Ki67 proliferation index in vivo.
  • Fig. S13. Effects of atorvastatin or C75 alone or in combination, on the growth of U87 or isogenic U87-EGFRvIII tumors in vivo.
  • Table S1. EGFR inhibition and lapatinib drug concentration in tumor.
  • Table S2. Immunohistochemical staining of proteins in tissue microarrays of GBM samples and adjacent normal brain.
