Correction

The original article [1] contains an error in Fig. 5e whereby the immunofluorescence of ΔNp63α in the ME group is incorrectly presented; thus, the corrected figure is shown ahead.

Transwell coculturing of oral mucosal epithelial cells (OMECs) and limbal niche cells (LNCs) in supplemented hormonal epithelial medium (SHEM). a Morphologic characterization of OMECs and LNCs cocultured in Transwell. Scale bar = 100 μm. b The relative mRNA expression of CK12 and Pax6 in cocultured OMECs and LNCs. c The relative protein levels of cocultured OMECs and LNCs. d Western blot analysis of CK12 and Pax6 expression in cocultured OMECs and LNCs; β-actin was used as an internal control. e Cells were single-stained for CK3, CK12, Pax6, and ΔNp63α, and nuclei were stained by DAPI. Scale bar = 50 μm. **p < 0.01, *p < 0.05. DF Cocultured OMECs supported by DF-LNCs in Transwell, LEPC Limbal epithelial progenitor cell, ME Cocultured OMECs supported by ME-LNCs in Transwell
