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], when reviewing the previous data while doing similar transwell assays related to LINC00707, the authors found a mistake in the naming of the data in Fig 4A and 4B, which has been caused by the overlapping of some pictures due to wrong naming during the preparation of Fig. 4. The authors have replaced the affected images in Fig. 4A and Fig. 4B, recounted the number of cells, and reorganized the bar charts in Fig. 4A and 4B accordingly.

The authors assure that the relevant results of the article are not affected by this. The corrected Fig. 4 is shown here.

Fig. 4. Knockdown of LINC00707 expression inhibits LAD cell migration in vitro and cell metastasis in vivo. (A) Transwell assays were performed to determine migration in LAD cells transfected with si-LINC00707 1#, 3# or scrambled. (B) Migration ability was investigated by transwell assays in LAD cells transfected with pcDNA-LINC00707 or empty vector. (C) Lungs from mice in each experimental group. (D) Numbers of metastasis nodules on the lung surfaces were counted. (E) Visualization of the entire lung, and H&E stained lung sections. Values are shown as the mean±s.d in three independent experiments. *P<0.05, **P<0.01.
