Abstract

We found a mistake in Figure 6. Panels A (Sham group) and F (DFX group) (180 degrees rotated) is same images. We have replaced the incorrect images (Panels F) with the correct Figure. This error does not change the meaning of the picture or the conclusion of the manuscript. We apologize for our unintentional mistakes, which caused great inconvenience.

Key Words: Heme oxygenase-1, Hepcidin, Iron accumulation, Oxidative stress, Portal vein pressure, Carboxyhemoglobin, Bile duct ligation

Core Tip: We found a mistake in Figure 6. Panels A (Sham group) and F (DFX group) (180 degrees rotated) is same images. We have replaced the incorrect images (Panels F) with the correct Figure. This error does not change the meaning of the picture or the conclusion of the manuscript. We apologize for our unintentional mistakes, which caused great inconvenience.



TO THE EDITOR

We found a mistake in Figure 6. Panels A (Sham group) and F (DFX group) (180 degrees rotated) is same images. We have replaced the incorrect images (Panels F) with the correct Figure 1. We only revised the incorrect figure, and the Manuscript NO: 75978 don't need to revise[1].

Figure 1
Figure 1 erl’s Prussian blue staining, levels of hepcidin, serum and liver iron. A: No iron accumulated in the Sham group; B: A small amount of iron mainly accumulated on Kupffer cells in the bile duct ligation (BDL) group; C: Much more iron accumulation was found in interlobular and macrophagocytes in the cobalt protoporphyrin (CoPP) group; D and F: Almost no iron accumulation was detected in the zinc protoporphyrin (ZnPP) group and deferoxamine (DFX) group; E: Massive iron accumulation was observed in the Fe group; G and H: There were no differences in the hepatic and serum iron content of these six groups; I: Plasma hepcidin also was measured by enzyme-linked immuno sorbent assay (magnification × 400). Values are expressed as mean ± SE (n = 6). bP < 0.01 vs Sham group; cP < 0.05, dP < 0.01 vs BDL group; eP < 0.05 vs ZnPP group.
