In the article A Blockade of IGF Signaling Sensitizes Human Ovarian Cancer Cells to the Anthelmintic Niclosamide-Induced Anti-Proliferative and Anticancer Activities. [Cell Physiol Biochem 2016; 39(3):871-88. doi: 10.1159/000447797] by Deng et al., several image assembly (copy/paste) errors were identified in Figure 5a-ii and 5b. Specifically, (1) the images for “24h, 48h and 72h of RGFP, siIGF1R (Lo MOI) and siIGF1R (Hi MOI)”groups in Figure 5a-ii were erroneously duplicated with the images from “HeyA8’s 24h, 48h and 72h” groups of Figure 2a. This was caused by selecting incorrect images of the raw images that were sorted in time point-based folders. (2) three duplication errors in Figure 5b: the image for “NA 0µM/RGFP/0h” group was erroneously duplicated with the image from “NA 2µM/RGFP/0h” group; the image for “NA 0µM/RGFP/12h” group was erroneously duplicated with the image from “NA 0µM/siIGF1R/12h” group; and the image for “NA 0µM/siIGF1R/40h” group was erroneously duplicated with the image from “NA 2µM/RFGP/40h” group. The errors were caused by replacing the low resolution images with high resolution images by the authors at the manuscript finalization stage. The authors state that the errors do not adversely impact the conclusion of the original work. The authors apologize for any inconvenience caused by the errors to the journal and scientific community.
The corrected Figure 5 is shown below.
