In addition, a symbol indicating a statistically significant difference of p < 0.05 for caspase activity in the presence of rhPRL vs control conditions was omitted from parts d and f of Fig. 2. The corrected graphs are shown below.

rhPRL inhibits caspase activity, but does not interfere with nitric oxide production upon serum starvation and cytokine-induced apoptosis. Cells were subjected to serum starvation (a, c, e, g) or treated with a combination of cytokines (b, d, f, h) in the presence or absence of rhPRL (200 ng/ml). After 48 h treatment, cells were collected and lysed in an apropriate buffer. (a, b) Caspase-3, (c, d) caspase-9 and (e, f) caspase-8 activities were measured by a fluorimetric assay using a specific substrate and data normalised relative to total protein content. (g, h) Nitric oxide (NO) production was measured on the supernatant fraction of cells maintained in the above conditions using a fluorimetric assay, with data normalised relative to total protein content. Results are mean±SEM; n ≥ 3 independent experiments; *p < 0.05 for difference compared with control situation, which was set at 1
