In the version of the article, “Signal Transducer and Activator of Transcription-1 Is Critical for Apoptosis in Macrophages Subjected to Endoplasmic Reticulum Stress In Vitro and in Advanced Atherosclerotic Lesions In Vivo,” by Lim et al that was posted online on January 28, 2008 (DOI: 10.1161/CIRCULATIONAHA.107.711275), several errors occurred.
In the Figure 6 legend, starting 12 lines from the top, the wrong color arrows are indicated. The text should read “ … endothelial cells (green arrows) and smooth muscle cells (SMC) in the media (blue arrows).”
On the same page, left column, ninth line from the top, the callout for Figure 7C should read, “Figure 7C, top middle, asterisk” rather than “Figure 7C, bottom left, asterisk.”
In the Figure 7 legend, 9 lines from the top, the sentence should begin, “The lower middle image shows … ” rather than “These lower middle images show ….”
In the Figure 8 legend, the wording for panel C was incomplete. It should read, “C, TUNEL (red), DAPI (blue), macrophage (brown), and SMC (brown) staining of lesions similar to those in B.”
Also in the Figure 8 legend, the following sentence, currently located toward the end of the legend, should have appeared with the description of panel B: “Total lesion area was 493.7±40.5 and 380.6±24.4 μm2 in Stat1+/+→Ldlr−/− and Stat1−/−→Ldlr−/− mice, respectively.”
These errors have been corrected in the current online version and in the final print version of the article in the February 19, 2008, issue of the journal (Circulation. 2008;117:940–951). The authors regret these errors.
