The map locations of the two wheat AGO4_9 class genes AGO802 and AGO804 are incorrect throughout the article. The correct map locations should be chromosomes 3L and 1L.
The seventh sentence of the Abstract is incorrect. It should read: Our results indicate that the two wheat AGO4_9 class genes i.e. AGO802 and AGO804 map to chromosomes 3L and 1L are preferentially expressed in the embryos of developing seeds.
The heading of the third subsection in the Results is incorrect. It should read: AGO802 and AGO804 map to chromosome 3L and 1L.
There is an error in the fifth sentence of the Discussion. It should read: AGO802 maps to chromosome 3L whereas AGO804 maps to chromosome 1L based on the homoeolog-specific PCR primers.
Absence of amplification in lanes Dt3AS, Dt3BS and Dt3DS in AGO802, suggest its map location on chromosome arm 3L. While in AGO804, absence of amplification in Dt1AS, Dt1BS and Dt1DS lanes, confirms its map location on chromosome 1L.
