Since its publication, it has been brought to our attention that there is an error in Fig. 4 of Loreti et al. (2008), where the labels ‘−GA’ and ‘+GA’ are inverted. The upper row in each heatmap should be labelled ‘−GA’; the lower row labelled ‘+GA’. The correct figure is printed below.

Figure 4.

Effect of gibberellin (GA) on the ga1-5 mutant. The AtGenExpress dataset TAIR-ME00343 (GA3 time course in Col-0 and ga1-5 mutant seedlings) was used. The dataset was obtained using 7-d-old Arabidopsis seedlings grown for 0.5, 1, 3 h on Murashige and Skoog medium (−GA3) or medium supplemented with GA3 (1  μM) under continuous light at 23°C. Expression data were visualized using Heatmapper Plus software ( The output of the software is shown, with the genes involved in each metabolic step represented by their respective gene symbols. A yellow square (and shades of yellow) indicate a gene whose induction level is relatively low. A red square (and shades of red) indicates a gene whose induction is relatively high within each gene dataset. Each set of expression data referring to each gene should be viewed individually, since scaling of colour shades is done based on the higher (red) and lower (yellow) expression data relative to the gene under study.

We apologize to our readers for this mistake.
