The corresponding author of the original article has informed us of concerns about the immunoblots in Fig. 2 which were carried out in the collaborating laboratory of Professor Ann Jackman. The experiment has been replicated twice in the Workman laboratory and the findings remain the same. The authors have provided the original blots and the corrected version for Fig. 2 and this has been included in the latest online HTML and PDF versions of the article. The change does not affect the Figure Legend or main text of the article. The authors regret this error.

Effects in A2780 human ovarian cancer cells of 17-AAG, carboplatin or the combination of both drugs on the expression HSP90 client proteins and the co-chaperone HSP70. Proteins were analyzed by western blotting with glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH) as the loading control. Cells exposed to control, 1 × IC50 and 10 × IC50 concentrations of both drugs as single agents and in combination. The IC50 values for 17-AAG and carboplatin were 18 nM and 8 μM respectively. Effects on client proteins C-RAF, p-AKT and AKT in addition to co-chaperone HSP70 and downstream signaling proteins p-ERK and ERK are shown. The experiment was repeated independently with similar results
