Following the publication of this article, an interested reader made us aware that the authors of the above paper had misappropriated certain of the data that had been published previously in three different papers.
Specifically, Fig. 2A, B and G in the above paper appeared to be derived from Figs. 2A, 3 and 1A, respectively, of the paper by CM Ripplinger, CW Kessinger, C Li, JW Kim, JR McCarthy, R Weissleder, PK Henke, CP Lin and FA Jaffer (Arterioscler Thromb Vasc Biol 32: 2616–2624, 2012). Figs. 2E, F, H, I and J in the above paper appeared to be derived from Figs. 1, 2A, 2D, 5E and 3F, respectively, of the paper by ML von Brühl, K Stark, A Steinhart, S Chandraratne, I Konrad, M Lorenz, A Khandoga, A Tirniceriu, R Coletti, M Köllnberger, et al (J Exp Med 209: 819–835, 2012).
