  1. Salicylic acid promotes seed germination under high salinity by modulating antioxidant activity in Arabidopsis Volume 188, Issue 2, 626–637, Article first published online: 20 July 2010

Since its publication, the authors of Lee et al. (2010) have brought to our attention that there is an error in Fig. 2 in their paper. In the key of Fig. 2(c), the descriptor of the open squares incorrectly states Salt 150 mM + SA 10 μM. This should read Salt 150 mM + SA 100 μM. The correct Fig. 2 is printed below.

Figure 2.

 Salicylic acid (SA) promotes germination under high salinity. Germination assays were carried out as described in Fig. 1. Bars indicate standard error of the mean. The statistical significance of differences between the measurements was determined by a Student t-test (*P < 0.01). h, hours after cold imbibition. (a) Effects of NaCl on germination of Columbia (Col-0) seeds. Seeds were cold-imbibed and germinated on Murashige and Skoog (MS) agar plates supplemented with various concentrations of NaCl. All the concentrations of NaCl examined significantly delayed germination at 36 h after cold imbibition. (b) Effects of high concentrations of SA on germination of Col-0 seeds under high salinity. Seeds were cold-imbibed and germinated on MS agar plates supplemented with 150 mM NaCl (calculated water potential (ψw) −0.83 MPa; Verslues et al., 2006) and various concentrations (100 μM to 1 mM) of SA. (c) Effects of low concentrations of SA on germination of Col-0 seeds under high salinity. SA at a concentration of 1 or 10 μM significantly promoted germination.
