In the article titled “Irbesartan Ameliorates Diabetic Nephropathy by Suppressing the RANKL-RANK-NF-κB Pathway in Type 2 Diabetic db/db Mice” [1], in Figure 3(c)(A), the value of ordinate should be narrowed down to 0.01 times that of the data presented. And in Figure 6(b), the abscissa p-65/p65 should be changed to p-p65/p65. The two corrected figures are presented here.

Figure 3: Irb alleviated diabetes-induced podocyte injury and the thickening of the GBM. (a) Representative fields of podocyte foot processes under TEM (scale bars: 2 μm; red arrow indicates podocyte foot process effacement). (b) Representative fields of nephrin, as labeled by immunohistochemical staining (scale bars: 50 μm). (c) Quantification of the GBM thickness (A) and immunohistochemical staining (B). The bars in panel (c) show the mean expression in arbitrary units (error bars, SD). compared with db/m; compared with db/db, -test.
Figure 6: Irb inhibited NF-κB pathway activation in db/db mice. (a) Representative immunoblot of p-IκBα, IκBα, p-p65, and p65 in the kidney. (b) Quantification of the immunoblot: the ratio between p-IκBα and IκBα and the ratio between p-p65 and p65 are presented. The bars in panel (b) show the mean expression in arbitrary units (error bars, SD). compared with db/m; compared with db/db, -test.
