In the original article, there was an error. On page 15 of the manuscript (PDF) we have written "adenylation" instead of "acetylation": "This was first evident in monocytes stimulated with bacterial lipopolysaccharide through an active, non-classical pathway and appears to require the same two lysine residues (Lys301/304) that are the site of adenylation in hemodialysis patients (Frye et al., 2009;Ewert et al., 2018;Figures 3-5)". . A correction has been made to Section: YB-1: a malignant jack of all trades, Subsection: YB-1 is secreted into the extracellular space under cellular stress, Paragraph 2:Corrected paragraph: Y-box binding protein-1 is related on an evolutionary level to HMGB1 and is also secreted under certain cellular stresses. This was first evident in monocytes stimulated with bacterial lipopolysaccharide through an active, non-classical pathway and appears to require the same two lysine residues (Lys301/304) that are the site of acetylation in hemodialysis patients (Frye et al., 2009;Ewert et al., 2018;Figures 3-5). Secreted YB1 stimulated DNA synthesis, cell proliferation and migration of kidney cells (Frye et al., 2009). More pertinent to thoracic cancer, YB-1 is also secreted under oxidative stress. YB-1 translationally upregulates G3BP1 under oxidative stress and localizes to cytoplasmic stress granules where it is involved in pro-survival mRNA reprogramming (Somasekharan et al., 2015). G3BP1 also promotes the invasion and metastasis of sarcoma cells in vivo (Somasekharan et al., 2015). In support, YB-1 enrichment in stress granules is also linked to its secretion to the extracellular space under oxidizing conditions (Guarino et al., 2018;Figures 4, 5). Secretion of YB-1 resulted in depletion of cytoplasmic YB-1, leaving nuclear expression intact (presumably to allow for YB-1-mediated DNA repair), while secreted YB-1 inhibited the growth of neighboring keratinocytes (Guarino et al., 2018).
