In the article “MicroRNA-138 Aggravates Inflammatory Responses of Macrophages by Targeting SIRT1 and Regulating the NF-κB and AKT Pathways” [Cell Physiol Biochem 2018;49:489-500. DOI: 10.1159/000492988] by Bai et al., the incorrect representative images were included for Figure 3A Heart NC and In-138 groups as a result of an error when saving the photographs.

The corrected Figure 3 is shown here.

Fig. 3. MiR-138 antagomir alleviated tissue damage and organ dysfunction in a sepsis animal model. A-D, Mice were treated with miR-138 antagomir (in-138) or control inhibitor (NC) for 48 hours, followed by the LPS challenge. Representative pathological results of the H&E stain for heart, liver, lung and kidney are shown, and the tissues damage for the four organs were evaluated by a histopathologic scoring system (A). The serum levels of IL-1β, IL-6 and TNF-α were measured by ELISA (B), and the levels of Cr, BUN, ALT and AST (C-D) in the serum were tested. The scale bar in A represents 50 µm. N=6 for each group. *, p<0.05; **, p<0.01.
