Correction to: The effects and mechanisms of SLC34A2 in tumorigenesis and progression of human non-small cell lung cancer
Journal of Biomedical Science volume 26, Article number: 18 (2019)
Correction to: J Biomed Sci
After the publication of this article  it came to our attention that there were some errors in two of the figures:
In Fig. 3, a number of images were duplicated. Specifically, in Fig. 3a we confused the SK-MES-1 control group with the P group; and in Fig. 3c we confused the A549 control group with the A549 P group. The correct images for the entire Fig. 3 have been included below. We apologise for any inconvenience this might have caused.
In Fig. 4 we included a Western blot image (Fig. 4a) which was identical with Fig. 1c in another article  by our group without making this clear in the figure legend. This has been corrected in the legend below. Again, we apologise for any inconvenienced caused.
Figure 4 SLC34A2 suppressed tumor growth and lung metastasis of NSCLC in vivo. (a) The expressions of SLC34A2 in A549-P-S, A549-P and A549 cells were confirmed by Western blot. This panel is reproduced from Yang et al. . (b) The concentrations of phosphorous in the supernatant of medium were measured by using a phosphorous measurement kit in A549-P-S, A549-P and A549 cells. (c) Tumor growth curve (each group contained 8 mice). (d) Tumor wet weight. Mice were killed for measurement of tumor weight at 60 days after inoculation. (e) Lungs from mice injected with A549-P-S, A549-P and A549 cells were injected intratracheally with India ink and fixed in AAF solution. (f) The numbers of lung nodules were counted under a dissecting microscope.
