[Corrigendum] SCF increases cardiac stem cell migration through PI3K/AKT and MMP‑2/‑9 signaling

Int J Mol Med. 2022 Mar;49(3):36. doi: 10.3892/ijmm.2022.5091. Epub 2022 Jan 28.


Following the publication of this article, the authors have realized that they mistakenly used the total AKT blot featured in Fig. 4A for the GAPDH blot in Fig. 3B on p. 116. The corrected version of Fig. 3, featured the correct data for the GAPDH experiment, is shown opposite. The authors regret that this error was not picked up upon before the paper was sent to press, and thank the Editor of International Journal of Molecular Medicine for allowing them the opportunity to publish a corrigendum. The error did not affect either the results or the conclusions reported in the study, and all the authors agree to this corrigendum. Furthermore, they regret any inconvenience caused to the readership. [the original article was published in International Journal of Molecular Medicine 34: 112‑118, 2014; DOI: 10.3892/ijmm.2014.1773].

Keywords: PI3K/AKT signaling; cardiac stem cells; cell migration; matrix metalloproteinase‑2; matrix metalloproteinase‑9; stem cell factor (SCF)/c‑Kit system.
