Erratum to: Reliable transgene-independent method for determining sleeping beauty transposon copy numbers

The Original Article was published on 03 March 2011


After the publication of our article [1], the authors noticed two typing errors in the ’Methods’ part of the original article:

  • in Table two, the correct sequence of RPPH1 / Probe is 2 nucleotides longer at the 3’ end, so it is: CACTCCCATGTCCCTT ;

  • in the penultimate sentence of the 'Quantitative real-time PCR' section, the concentrations of the primers and the probe were switched so the correct sentence should be: "Final concentrations of primers and probes were 900 and 250 nM, respectively."

The authors apologize for these unintended mistakes in the text.
