In the Hypertension article by Yasuda et al (Yasuda N, Akazawa H, Ito K, Shimizu I, Kudo-Sakamoto Y, Yabumoto C, Yano M, Yamamoto R, Ozasa Y, Minamino T, Naito AT, Oka T, Shiojima I, Tamura K, Umemura S, Nemer M, Komuro I. Agonist-Independent Constitutive Activity of Angiotensin II Receptor Promotes Cardiac Remodeling in Mice. Hypertension. 2012;59:627–633), corrections have been made.
Pierre Paradis's name was erroneously omitted from the author line. He has made the transgenic mice AGTR1, which are very important for this study.
The corrected author line and affiliations are as follows: Noritaka Yasuda, Hiroshi Akazawa, Kaoru Ito, Ippei Shimizu, Yoko Kudo-Sakamoto, Chizuru Yabumoto, Masamichi Yano, Rie Yamamoto, Yukako Ozasa, Tohru Minamino, Atsuhiko T. Naito, Toru Oka, Ichiro Shiojima, Kouichi Tamura, Satoshi Umemura, Pierre Paradis, Mona Nemer, Issei Komuro

On page 628, first paragraph of the Methods section, the first sentence following the subheading, the name of a gene is not correct: it should be “AGTR1”, not “AGTR1a”. This change affects none of the observations or conclusions made in the article.
The authors regret these errors.
These corrections have been made to the current online version of the article, which is available at http://hyper.ahajournals.org/content/59/3/627.full.
