In the original article by Ma, et al., entitled “The Long Intergenic Noncoding RNA 00707 Promotes Lung Adenocarcinoma Cell Proliferation and Migration by Regulating Cdc42” [Cell Physiol Biochem 2018;45:1566-1580, DOI: 10.1159/000487693], the LINC00707 expression levels of 57 pairs of lung specimens in Fig. 1A were confused with other data when preparing the figure. The authors would like to correct this and assure that the relevant results of the article are not affected by this. The corrected Fig. 1 is shown here.

Fig. 1. Relative expression of LINC00707 in LAD tissues and its clinical significance. (A) Data collected from TCGA database showed relative expression of LINC00707 in LAD tissues (n=57) and their corresponding nontumorous tissues (n=57). (B) Relative LINC00707 expression in LAD tissues (n=64) compared with their adjacent non-cancerous tissues analyzed by qRT-PCR and tissues were divided into two groups according to the fold-change of LINC00707 expression. (C and D) Kaplan-Meier progression-free survival and overall survival curves according to LINC00707 expression levels. Error bars indicate mean±standard errors of the mean. *P<0.05, **P<0.01.
