Since its publication, the authors of Xu et al. (2008) have brought to our attention that there is an error in their article where one of the viruses used was given the wrong strain designation. The Brome mosaic virus strain used to infect rice was H-BMV (Ding et al., 2006). H-BMV is a reassortant consisting of RNAs 1 and 2 of the F-BMV strain, which infects rice, and RNA 3 of the Russian strain of BMV, which does not infect rice.
We apologize to our readers for this mistake.
