Erratum to: Switching of mesodermal and endodermal properties in hTERT-modified and expanded fetal human pancreatic progenitor cells
Stem Cell Research & Therapy volume 6, Article number: 189 (2015)
After publication of our article , errors were noticed in the composition of data in Figures threeC, fiveD and sixA (Figs. 1c, 2d and 3a here respectively). The data from original gels were incorrectly compiled or modified by the first author, Dr. K. Cheng, which was not noticed by the other authors.
In figure threeC (Fig. 1c here) the original gels for the following genes were incorrectly represented – GATA-2, GATA-6, ISL-1, Pdx1, CGA, GK, TGF-α, TGF-β1, TGF-β2, TGF-β2R, and GAPDH. Expression of these genes in mature islets was verified by additional studies.
In figure fiveD (Fig. 2d here) some of the lanes were cut out of the composition, and others were mislabeled.
In figure sixA (Fig. 3a here) the published figure was erroneously composed with incorrect or distorted images.
The correct figures are provided here. These errors do not affect the results or conclusions of our study.
