Mistake in last paragraph

Posted by KarlV on 06 May 2009 at 14:24 GMT

In the last paragraph, the author states that CDH5 is mapped to chromosome 1q, and that loss of chromosome 1q is frequent in human cancers. However, both CDH5 and DEAR1 are located on the short arm of chromosome 1 (1p) and it is this region which is frequently deleted in human cancers.
