Material and methods

Animals

In the fibrosis model, 6-week-old male NK2 transgenic mice (n=3) and male WT mice (n=3) received intraperitoneal injection of 1 ml/kg CCl4 (Kanto Chemistry, Tokyo, Japan) dissolved in olive oil (Kanto Chemistry) twice a week.

The text was incorrect and should have read:

In the fibrosis model, 6-week-old male NK2 transgenic mice (n=4–6) and male WT mice (n=3–5) received intraperitoneal injection of 1 ml/kg CCl4 (Kanto Chemistry, Tokyo, Japan) dissolved in olive oil (Kanto Chemistry) twice a week.

Statistical analysis

All experimental data are expressed as mean±SD. Differences between groups were examined for statistical significance using Student's t-test.

The text was incorrect and should have read:

All experimental data are expressed as mean±SD. Differences between groups were examined for statistical significance using Student's t-test or analysis of variance (anova) followed by Scheffe's test.

Results

Figure 2 was presented incorrectly (see changes above). Figure 2 should have been presented as follows:
