In the article “Destabilizing Role of Cathepsin S in Murine Atherosclerotic Plaques” by Kenneth J. Rodgers, Deborah J. Watkins, Alastair L. Miller, Peter Y. Chan, Sharada Karanam, William H. Brissette, Clive J. Long, and Christopher L. Jackson in the April 2006 issue of Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology (Arterioscler Thromb Vasc Biol. 2006;26:851–856), the authors mistakenly left out an acknowledgement of contributions to their article. The acknowledgement that should have been included is:
The authors would like to acknowledge Dr Sarah Jane George and Dr Mark Bond, who made critical suggestions and improvements to the genotyping protocols, without which these studies would not have been possible.
The authors regret this oversight.
