Following the publication of the above article, an interested reader drew to the authors’ attention that the 24 h, A and the 48 h, C panels shown in Fig. 4 appeared to contain overlapping data. After having re-examined their original data, the authors have realized that this Figure was assembled incorrectly.
The morphology of various HeLa cell treatment groups were observed at 24, 48 and 72 h subsequent to transfection. (A) Cells transfected with pLEGFP-C1-M-IL-2(88Arg, 125Ala). (B) pLEGFP-C1-transfected cells. (C) Lipofectamine 2000-transfected cells. (D) non-transfected cells.
The corrected version of Fig. 4 is presented opposite. Note that this inadvertent error did not have a major impact on the results or the conclusions reported in this paper. Four of the named authors (Guangcan Shao, Dongmeng Qian, Ming Hu and Tongmei Wang) agree with this corrigendum; the other three authors proved to be uncontactable. These four authors would like to thank the Editor of Oncology Letters for allowing them the opportunity to publish this corrigendum; furthermore, they apologize to the readership of the Journal for any inconvenience caused.
