In the article by Giannarelli, et al, “Alternatively Spliced Tissue Factor Promotes Plaque Angiogenesis Through the Activation of Hypoxia-Inducible Factor-1α and Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor Signaling,” which was published in the October 7, 2014 issue of the journal (Circulation. 2014;130:1274–1286, doi:10.1161/CIRCULATIONAHA.114.006614), a correction is needed. Specifically, in the Acknowledgments section, it was noted that the pTriEx3-Neo-asTF expression vector was a gift from Dr. V.Y. Bogdanov. Dr. Giannarelli has reported that this statement is incorrect. For this reason, the Acknowledgment to Dr. Bogdanov has been removed. The source of the vector is unknown. The matter had been referred to the authors’ institutions but there is no confirmation to date.
The revised Acknowledgment section reads:
We thank Rolando Nolasco for immunohistochemistry studies. We acknowledge Aesha Patel (RPA-C), the Institutional Biorepository/Biospecimen Bank Shared Resource Facility (SRF), and the Microscopy (SRF) of the Mount Sinai Medical Center. Ad.VEGF-Trap was a generous gift from Regeneron to Drs Hutter and Badimon.
