There are some typographical errors in the manuscript. In the Results section of the manuscript, specifically in the paragraph entitled “Partitioning mechanism of a striped anionic NP in lipid bilayers”, it is stated that “We consider an anionic NP with a core diameter of 4.3 nm…”. The correct statement should be “We consider an anionic NP with a core diameter of 3 nm…”

There is also an error in S1 Fig: the distance between the C1 and the Qa particle is not 0.62 nm as shown in the figure, but 0.47 nm. Please view the correct version of S1 Fig here:
