Erratum to: Characterization of a Plasmodium berghei sexual stage antigen PbPH as a new candidate for malaria transmission-blocking vaccine

The Original Article was published on 02 April 2016

Erratum

After the publication of our paper [1], we realized that the positions of the primers 2, 5 and 6 in Fig. 4a were incorrect due to shifting. The corrected Fig. 4 is included below. In addition, “Mosquitoes Infected/Dissected” in Table 1 should read “Mosquitoes Dissected/Infected”. We would like to apologise for these errors and for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Knockout of pbph gene from P. berghei parasite. a A schematic shows the wild type pbph locus, transfection construct, and the recombined locus. Through a double-crossover strategy the pbph locus was replaced with the dhfr-expressing cassette. Primers 1–6 used to detect gene knockout are marked. b PCR detection of wild-type and Δpbph parasite genomes. Lane 1: primers 1 + 2 (910 bp); Lane 2: primers 1 + 3 (990 bp); Lane 3: primers 5 + 6 (1,040 bp)
