The published version of this article [1] contains a duplicated Rp49 loading control in the lower panel of Figure 1. The corrected Figure 1 is presented here. Calculations for levels of gene expression in the original article remain unchanged, as they were generated using the correct control panel. The authors apologize for this error.
Fig. 1

Northern analysis of MnSOD and hsp22 expression in control and transgenic lines. Northern analysis for controls and transgenic lines MnSOD(2)22, MnSOD(2)38, MnSOD(2)4, MnSOD(2)12, and MnSOD(2)20 demonstrates the induction of MnSOD transgene expression by DOX administration and the increased expression of hsp22 due to MnSOD over-expression. Rp49 represents the loading control; 1X = 5 μg RNA, 2X = 10 μg RNA
