After publication of this work [1], we noted that we repeatedly had a typo mistake across the manuscript. The compound we used to test our cell lines was SCH772984 and not SCH722984. The typo was found misspelled in 54 occasions, including the title.

We also wanted to add an affiliation detail to the author’s list, as noted above.

We regret the mistake and upload this note to clarify it.
