There are errors in the title and legend of Fig. 1. The title should read “Weight gain in rats during dietary supplementation period.” In the legend, “(63 ± 4 g initial weight)” should read “(140 ± 11.35 g initial weight).” Please view the correct Fig. 1 title and legend here.
Growth during a 16-day period in rats (140 ± 11.35 g initial weight) fed equivalent daily amounts of a lactalbumin control diet with no added cholesterol (CNC); a lactalbumin control diet with 2% added cholesterol (CC); a diet containing 50% protein from cooked sea cucumber meal (CS50); one containing 50% protein from oven-cooked sea cucumber (OS50); or one containing 50% protein from lyophilized washed sea cucumber meal (LWS50). Values are means ± SD, N = 5.
Sections A, D, G, J and M were stained with hematoxylin / eosin (H&E); B, E, H, K and N were stained with periodic acid-Schiff stain (PAS) and C, F, I, L and O were stained with Oil Red O. Magnification was 40X for H&E and PAS and 10X for Oil Red O. Consumption of sea cucumber limited the effects of dietary cholesterol on liver lipid deposition. CNC (A, B & C), no steatosis; CC (D, E & F), severe microvesicular steatosis; LWS50 (G. H & I), minor steatosis; CS50 (J, K & L) severe microvesicular steatosis; OS50 (M,N & O) minor steatosis with scattered lipid microvesicles. Lowercase "a" with an arrow indicates example of steatosis.
There are two errors in the footnotes for Table 3. For footnote 2, “CC = Control with 1% cholesterol” should read “CC = Control with 2% cholesterol.” For footnote 4, “Initial weight = 140±1135 g wet weight” should read “Initial weight = 140±11.35 g wet weight.” Please view the corrected Table 3 here.
Additionally, there is an error in the footnotes of Tables 4, 5, 7, and 8. “CC = Control with 1% cholesterol” should read “CC = Control with 2% cholesterol.” Please view the corrected Tables 4, 5, 7, and 8 here.
