In the article titled “Expression of miRNA-122 Induced by Liver Toxicants in Zebrafish” [1], there was an error in Materials and Methods, where the subtitle “2.4. Quantitative Real-Time RT-PCR of miRNA-122,” should be corrected to “2.4. Quantitative Real-Time PCR of miRNA-122.” In addition, there is an error in the legend of Figure 2(d), which should be corrected as follows.

Figure 2: Tissue-specific cell death in the zebrafish larvae treated with tamoxifen (TAM) or metronidazole (Mtz). (a) 0.1% DMSO-treated control (5 dpf) and (b) 1 μM and (c) 5 μM TAM-treated zebrafish larvae. (d) 0.1% DMSO-treated control (5 dpf) and (e) 10 mM Mtz-treated zebrafish larvae. Liver-specific cell death was visualized by reduction of transparency in the TAM-treated zebrafish larvae (red arrow), compared to brain-specific cell death in the Mtz-treated larvae (white asterisk). For Mtz experiments, the transgenic zebrafish system, having neuron-specific nitroreductase expression, was used [20].
