Supplementary Methods Transwell assay using free PKH67 dye 5x103 U87 recipient cells were plated in wells of a12 well plate. The following day, cells were washed with PBS. Next 10 µl of PKH67 dye was added to 2 ml of diluent C and this was divided into two fractions A and B. Fraction A was mixed with media alone while fraction B was mixed with heparin (final heparin concentration 67 µg/ml). Next fraction A and B were each divided among three wells containing unlabeled cells. Cells were incubated for 24 hr at 37C and flow cytometry was performed to measure cell labeling of recipient U87 cells. Zeta potential measurement The zeta potential of U87-derived EV in the presence or absence of heparin was determined using the Zetasizer Nano - ZS device (Malvern, UK) at pH 7.5. EVs were left untreated or were mixed with 100 µg/ml of heparin for 1 h at room temperature before measurement. Determining cellular localization of Gli36-EGFRvIII-derived EVs in recipient U87 cells after 3 h incubation. EVs from Gli36-EGFRvIII cells were labeled with PKH67 dye as before. Next, EVs were added to unlabeled recipient U87 cells for 30 minutes at room temperature. Bright field and fluorescence images were acquired. Next cells were trypsinized, washed in PBS, and replated and allowed to attach for 3 hours before re-examining them for fluorescence. EV/cell binding assay and internalization assay EVs derived from Gli36-EGFRvIII were labeled with PKH67 membrane dye. Next EVs were incubated with PBS (as control) or 100µg/ml heparin for 15 min at RT. Then two types of incubation scenarios were performed. In the first, EVs were added to U87-MG grown on coverslips placed in a 12 well plate and the plate was kept at 4ºC to allow binding but not internalization of EVs. After 30 min, cells were washed to remove unbound EVs and fixed in 4% formaldehyde in 1 x PBS. In the second incubation scenario, the EVs and cells were incubated on ice and washed as above, but then they were switched to 37ºC for 30 min to allow internalization to occur prior to fixation. Next, samples were analyzed with confocal imaging using a Zeiss LSM 5 Pascal laserscanning confocal microscope (see section Heparin and EV colocalization). To determine whether the PKH67 fluorescence was present at the surface or intracellularly, z-stack images were acquired from the top of cells in 3 µm intervals to the bottom of cells.
