There is an error in the last three sentences in the paragraph “Oxygen consumption is decreased in control, but not in Il15 deficient mice maintained on HFD” of the Results section. The correct sentences are: To rule out that metabolic changes observed in Il15-/- HFD are not secondary to their lower body weight, we analysed WT mice following 7 weeks on HFD, as their body weight was comparable to that of Il15−/− maintained on HFD for 16 weeks. Oxygen consumption in Il15−/− HFD remained higher compared to paired-weight WT-HFD mice. Thus, Il15−/− maintained on HFD, but not NCD show elevated oxygen consumption, indicative of mitochondrial beta-oxidation and utilization of lipids in vivo.
