In the article by Xu et al (Xu X, Roe ND, Weiser-Evans MCM, Ren J. Inhibition of mammalian target of rapamycin with rapamycin reverses hypertrophic cardiomyopathy in mice with cardiomyocyte-specific knockout of PTEN. Hypertension. 2014;63:729–739.
doi: 10.1161/HYPERTENSIONAHA.113.02526), which published online ahead of print January 20, 2014, and appeared in the April 2014 issue of the journal, a correction was needed.
The authors of the above-mentioned paper noticed an error in Figure 1. During the assembly of representative gel bands, a single GAPDH band was mistakenly used to normalize PTEN levels and represent loading control for various tissues. The summary graphs have been updated using the correct GAPDH gel bands for each individual tissue type and the conclusion remains unchanged. The authors sincerely regret the error and wish to thank American Heart Association for publishing the correction. The corrected figure is shown below.
This correction has been made to the current online version of the article, which is available at http://hyper.ahajournals.org/content/63/4/729.full.
