Erratum to: In Vitro Cell. Dev. Biol.-Animal

DOI: 10.1007/s11626-013-9668-3

Published Vol. 49 No.10 pp. 798-804

In fatty acid analyses of our paper, we found that we had mistaken chromatographic peak of docosapentaenoic acid (C22:5n-3) for that of nervonic acid (C24:1n-9).

Consequently, first, C24:1n-9 was not detected in any data. Therefore, C24:1n-9 data needs to be omitted in Figure 2 in the paper, and in the sentence “Other MUFA contents in the Neo group were generally lower than those in the Fet and Cul groups, except for nervonic acid (C24:1n-9) where the content in the Neo group was the highest (p < 0.01)” (3rd sentence of 4th paragraph in the Results section of the paper), the phrase starting with “except” needs to be deleted.
Figure 3

Corrected C22:5n-3 content. Data is expressed as mean ± SE. Significant difference among the groups were detected by non-parametric Steel-Dwass test. ‡p < 0.01.

 Second, C22:5n-3 content in the Neo group became significantly higher than those in the Fet and Cul groups (p < 0.01, respectively) as shown in Figure 3, and the sentence “Some PUFAs in the Fet group were higher (C22:5n-3, p < 0.05) or lower (C18:3n-3, p < 0.05; C22:6n-3, p < 0.05) than those in the Neo group, and higher than those in the Cul group (C20:4n-6 and C22:4n-6, p < 0.01)” (last paragraph in the Results section of the paper) needs to be substituted for “Some PUFAs in the Fet group were lower (C18:3n-3 and C22:6n-3, p < 0.05; C22:5n-3, p < 0.01) than those in the Neo group, and higher than those in the Cul group (C20:4n-6 and C22:4n-6, p < 0.01)”.

 The revision shown above does not influence our conclusion.
