In the article “Expression of Human ApoAII in Transgenic Rabbits Leads to Dyslipidemia: A New Model for Combined Hyperlipidemia” by Koike et al, which appeared in the December 2009 issue of the journal (Arterioscler Thromb Vasc Biol. 2009;29:2047–2053; DOI: 10.1161/ATVBAHA.109.190264), the term “pre-beta HDL” was incorrectly expressed as “beta HDL” in two locations:
Page 2050, left column, lines 5 and 6: The correct version should read, “Almost all HDLs in Tg rabbits migrated to the pre-β position.”
Page 2052, left column, first full paragraph, lines 1 through 8: The correct version should read, “Second, the expression of apoAII resulted in several characteristic changes in HDL levels of Tg rabbits: (1) a marked reduction in plasma HDL-C; (2) a reduction in fast- or α-migrating HDL and an increase in slow- or pre-β-migrating HDL particles; and (3) a reduction in apoAI content in HDL particles compared with that in non-Tg rabbits, suggesting that apoAII plays multiple roles in HDL metabolism.”
