Following the publication of this article, the authors regretfully found two errors in the article and would like to make corrections:
In the Methods-Histology and immunostaining section, “anti-PSA antibody (1:100, 10679-1-AP, Proteintech, China)” should be corrected to “anti-PSA antibody (1:100, AF0246, Affinity Biosciences, China; 1:100, 10679-1-AP, Proteintech, China)”. Both antibodies worked well in immunofluorescence and western blot experiments and rendered consistent results. In this paper, AF0246 was used for Figs. 2F and 4C, and 10679-1-AP for Figs. 5D and 7.
The word “PSA” mentioned in the article should be changed to “PSA homologous KLK protein” (or “KLK*” for short in the figures) and annotated “*mouse KLK homologous protein recognized by the PSA/KLK3 antibody” upon the first occurrence. We noticed that PSA (prostate-specific antigen), also called KLK3 (kallikrein related peptidase 3), is a human-specific gene, and mice express other KLK homologs. Blast results of the immunogens suggested that the PSA antibodies used in this paper might bind to other KLK family members in the mouse. In this paper, we used the PSA/KLK3 antibodies to label prostate luminal cells, as PSA is a marker of human prostate luminal cells. To verify the antibody specificity, we performed immunostaining on mouse prostate tissue cryosection and found that the antibody indeed labeled the luminal cells in the mouse prostate tissue (Additional file 1: Fig. S1), supporting the use of these antibodies in the paper.
Specifically, we want to make the following changes:
In the Abstract, change “PSA” to “PSA homologous KLK protein”.
Figures 2, 4, 5 and 7: in the figures, change “PSA” to “KLK*”; in the figure captions, change “PSA” to “KLK* (*mouse KLK homologous protein recognized by the PSA/KLK3 antibody)”.
Page 3, right column, “Histology and immunostaining”, lines 14–15, change “anti-PSA antibody (1:100, 10679-1-AP, Proteintech, China)” to “anti-PSA antibody (1:100, AF0246, Affinity, China; 1:100, 10679-1-AP, Proteintech, China)”
Change “PSA” to “PSA homologous KLK protein *” in the following sentences:
Page 3, left column, lines 4 and 8
Page 5, right column, line 5
Page 7, left column, line 1,
Page 8, right column, line 1
Page 9, left column, line 1, right column, line 10
Page 10, left column, line 3
