This PDF file includes:

  • Materials and Methods
  • Fig. S1. α5 integrin is increased on the cell surface and contributes to migration of NCI-H460 cells.
  • Fig. S2. α5 integrin, but not α2 integrin, is recruited to the lamellae with ZO-1 upon wounding.
  • Fig. S3. Verification of siRNA efficacy.
  • Fig. S4. α5 integrin and ZO-1 colocalize in the lamellae of breast cancer cells; silencing of ZO-1 influences focal adhesion morphology.
  • Fig. S5. ZO-1 knock-down increases Rac activity.
  • Fig. S6. α5WT- and α5PPAA-expressing cells adhere equally well to fibronectin but differ in lamellae formation.
  • Fig. S7. α5 integrin and ZO-1 form a complex in a fraction of lung cancers.
  • Fig. S8. ZO-1 phosphorylation is increased in subconfluent cells; PKC inhibition impairs recruitment of α5 integrin and ZO-1 to lamellae; α5 mediates adhesion to fibronectin.
  • Fig. S9. Loss of PKCε does not influence internalization of α5 integrin from the cell surface.
  • Fig. S10. PKCε regulates the subcellular localization of ZO-1 through the putative PKC site Ser168.
