There are errors in Table 2 and Figure 3. In Table 2, the contents are incorrectly duplicated. In Figure 3C, the western blot representing FGF-1 is a duplicate of the one correctly representing Wnt11 in Figure 3B.

Please see the correct Table 2 here.

Please see the correct Figure 3 here.

Figure 3. Up-regulation of mRNA and protein levels of FGF-1, NGF and Wnt11 in SMCs by AdSmad3/TGF-β treatment.

Rat vascular SMCs were infected with AdSmad3 and treated with TGF-β (5 ng/ml) for 24 h. A. qRT-PCR was performed to evaluate gene expression of Fibroblast Growth Factor 1 (FGF1), Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) and wingless-type MMTV integration site family member 11 (Wnt11). B and C. Western blotting was performed to determine the protein production of these 3 growth factors contained in cell lysates (B) or secreted into media (C). Controls were AdGFP, AdGFP+ TGF-β and AdSmad3. **P<0.05, compared to all controls; *P<.05, compared to AdGFP; n  =  3.
