An interested reader drew to our attention that, in the above-mentioned article, there were two figures where identity in certain of the data was shared between panels within the same figure. First, in Fig. 3B, the data shown for the EC9706 cell line/negative control (NC) experiment were derived from the same original source as those for the EC-1/Blank control experiment. Secondly, in Fig. 6B the Bcl-2 bands for the two different cell lines, EC9706 and EC-1, were inadvertently duplicated (the data shown for the EC9706 cell line were correct).
Effects of upregulation of miR-1207-5p on apoptosis and invasion of EC9706 and EC-1. (A) Cell apoptosis was detected by Annexin V-FITC/PI assay. (B) Transwell assays were used to assess the invasive ability. *P<0.05; miR- 1207-5p, cells transfected with miR- 1207-5p mimic; NC, cells transfected with scrambled miR-1207-5p negative control; blank, untransfected cells.
miR-1207-5p might be involved in the NF-κB signal pathway. (A) p-IκBα was lower in EC9706 and EC-1 cells transfected with miR-1207-5p than in the control cells. (B) Bcl-2 expression was downregulated in miR-1207-5p-transfected cells compared with the control cells. *P<0.05; miR-1207-5p, cells transfected with miR-1207-5p mimic; NC, cells transfected with scrambled miR-1207-5p negative control; blank, untransfected cells.
We have reviewed the original files and the individual figures for the submitted composite figures, and realize that the errors occurred when we produced the composite figures. The same images were accidentally inserted twice in Figs. 3 and 6 without us being fully aware of the error. We have identified all the original images, and the corrected versions of Figs. 3 and 6 are shown opposite.
We regret that these errors went unnoticed prior to publication, and thank the Editor for affording us the opportunity to publish this Corrigendum. We also regret any inconvenience caused to the readership of the journal.
