Correction to: Identification of the functional role of peroxiredoxin 6 in the progression of breast cancer

Article metrics

The original article was published in Breast Cancer Research 2007 9:R76

Correction

After the publication of this work [1] an error in Fig. 1c was brought to our attention: the Western blots for PRDX6 and β-actin were similar to those shown in lanes 5-6 of Fig. 4g. To verify these findings, we have repeated this experiment and the results are shown in a new Fig. 1c below. The repeated experimental results are consistent with the previously reported findings in the original study [1] and the functional role for PRDX6 in malignant progression of human cancer including breast cancer has been widely documented and recognized in numerous other studies [2]. We apologize for the error. However, this correction does not affect the conclusions of the article.
