Supplementary Material

Supplementary Figure 1: The yield of LPMC in 16 week-old wildtype and ApcMin/+ mice (n=3) LPMCs were isolated in materials and methods. Two-tailed t-test was performed. ***, p< 0.0005.

Supplementary Figure 2: The homozygous deletion of the Apc gene in Tregs results in thymic atrophy and lymph adenopathy. Spleens, lymph nodes and thymus from 4 week-old Foxp3-Cre;Apcflox/flox mice and Foxp3-Cre;Apcflox/+ mice were presented. Total number of cells in peripheral lymph nodes (pLNs) are shown (n=3). Two-tailed t-test was performed. ***, p < 0.0005.

Supplementary Figure 3: Apc HET Treg transfer does not reduce the expression of TNF-α expression in polyps. Tumors (> 2.0 mm) were excised from each mouse and TNF-α expression was analyzed by real time PCR. Each group had minimum number of polyps as n=5. mRNA expression was normalized against HPRT for their relative expression level (HPRT=1). Two-tailed t-test was performed. n.s., not significant.
