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.
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.
