In the article by Wan et al, which appeared in the November 2013 issue of the journal (Arterioscler Thromb Vasc Biol. 2013;33:2470–2480. DOI: 10.1161/ATVBAHA.113.300986), a correction was needed.
Regarding the Western blot featured in Figure 3B, an internal research conduct investigation was undertaken by a formally convened panel at the National Heart and Lung Institute, Faculty of Medicine, Imperial College London, as the bands for p-ATF-1 and HO-1 appeared to be the same blot, only different sizes. The conclusion of the panel is that this was an honest error that has been corrected.
The authors apologize for the error.
