Subsequently to the publication of the above paper, an interested reader drew to the authors’ attention that, on p. 3437, the data shown in Fig. 2B and C were strikingly similar. The authors have re-examined their data, and realized that the data correctly shown for Fig. 2B was reused in Fig. 2C. However, the authors were able to locate the original data pertaining to Fig. 2C, and the corrected version of Fig. 2 is shown opposite.
Acridine orange/ethidium bromide staining for morphological changes in apoptotic HeLa cells at 24 h in the (A) control group and cells treated with (B) 1 µM β-HIVS, (C) 5 µM β-HIVS and (D) 10 µM β-HIVS. Magnification, ×100. β-HIVS, β-hydroxyisovaleryl-shikonin.
