In the article ‘Notch Signaling Augments BMP9-Induced Bone Formation by Promoting the
Osteogenesis-Angiogenesis Coupling Process in Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs).’ [Cell
Physiol Biochem. 2017;41(5):1905-1923; doi: 10.1159/000471945] by Liao et al., there is an
image assembly (copy/paste) error in Figure 2C-b, in which the image for “BMP9+NICD1/Day
7” group was erroneously duplicated with an overlapping image from the “BMP9+NICD1/
Day 14” group, with different exposure parameters. The error occurred when the authors
replaced the draft figures with high resolution images at the final figure assembly stage.
The authors state that this error does not adversely impact the conclusion of the original
work. The authors apologize for any inconvenience caused by the error to the journal and
The corrected Figure 2 is shown below.
