In the article, “Sphingosine-1-Phosphate Receptor Subtypes Differentially Regulate Smooth Muscle Cell Phenotype” by Wamhoff et al, which appeared in the August 2008 issue of the journal (Arterioscler Thromb Vasc Biol. 2008;28:1454–1461, DOI: 10.1161/ATVBAHA.107.159392), incorrect data were presented:
Page 1469, Figure 6A (upper panel). The images for the representative Western blot shown in the August 2008 ATVB paper were inadvertently generated from Western blots from Figure 6A of Wamhoff et al. Circ Res. 2004; 95(4):406-14, DOI: 10.1161/01.RES0000138582.36921.9e. The correct Western blot images, originally generated for the 2008 ATVB manuscript, are presented above and fully support the original conclusions of the paper.
Page 1469, Figure 6A (lower panel). The histogram presented in Figure 6A of the original 2008 ATVB paper was incorrect in that it represented data for N=3 biological replicates, not N=4 as reported in the legend. The histogram shown above is the correct one for N=4 biological replicates.
The online version has been corrected.
The first author sincerely regrets having made these errors.
