Following the publication of the above article, the authors have drawn to our attention that, in Fig. 6 on p. 83, the ‘Ad5/F-35 vector’ and ‘Control’ experiment data panels for the MKN45 cell line were inadvertently derived from the same original source. The Ad5/F35-vector and Control groups were both negative controls; Ad5/F35-vector was the empty vector condition, whereas ‘Control’ represented the ‘no vector’ experiment. A representative image belonging to the Control MKN45 experiment was inadvertently used to show the ‘Ad5-F35-vector’ experiment. An examination of the original data files confirmed that the data shown in the histogram for Fig. 6 were correct; therefore, this error in terms of figure placement did not influence the statistical analysis shown for the invasive ability of the cells.
Invasiveness of the SGC7901 and MKN45 cells was determined by Transwell chamber assay. aP<0.01 vs. the Ad5/F35-RELM-α-siRNA-treated group. RELM-α, resistin-like molecule-α.
A corrected version of Fig. 6, containing correct representative data for the ‘Ad5-F35-vector’ experiment, is shown opposite. This error did not affect the results or the conclusions reported in this study. The authors sincerely apologize for this mistake, and regret any inconvenience this mistake has caused.
