Pages R1449–R1456: Chung, Sean, Gwen O. Ivy, and Stephen G. Reid. “GABA-mediated neurotransmission in the nucleus of the solitary tract alters resting ventilation following exposure to chronic hypoxia in conscious rats.” (http://ajpregu.physiology.org/cgi/content/full/291/5/R1449). The upper panel of Figure 2 in this article contains several pieces of loose tissue as well as pink imaging artifacts in the corners of the rectangular white area that surrounds the photograph of the brain slice. In the Articles in PresS version of this paper, these pieces of tissue and imaging artifacts were covered with white boxes for aesthetic purposes. I apologize if this was in any way misleading; the intent was only to tidy up the white background area surrounding the picture.

Pages R625–R632: R. J. Widmer, J. E. Laurinec, M. F. Young, G. A. Laine, and C. M. Quick: “Local heat produces a shear-mediated biphasic response in the thermoregulatory microcirculation of the Pallid bat wing” (http://ajpregu.physiology.org/cgi/content/full/291/3/R625). On page R626, in materials and methods, right column, last paragraph, the equation for sheer stress is incorrect. It should read: “sheer stress = 4·μ·velocity/radius.”

Pages 575–R579: Marina Korotkova, Britt G. Gabrielsson, Agneta Holmäng, Britt-Marie Larsson, Lars Å. Hanson, and Birgitta Strandvik: “Gender-related long-term effects in adult rats by perinatal dietary ratio of n-6/n-3 fatty acids” (http://ajpregu.physiology.org/cgi/content/full/288/3/R575). In this paper, Tables 1 and 2 were inadvertently included that were also published by us in another paper that had used the same animals for the purpose of studying long-term effects on bone mass (M Korotkova, C Ohlsson, LÅ Hanson and B Strandvik: “Dietary n-6:n-3 fatty acid ratio in the perinatal period affects bone parameters in adult female rats”, published in Brit J Nutr 92: 643–648, 2004 ). Table 1 described the diet used during pregnancy and lactation and Table 2 described the pattern of fatty acids in serum phospholipids in the resulting rat pups at weaning (3 wk of age) in the various experimental groups that were common to both long-term studies.
We apologize for submitting the same data in both papers rather than cross-referencing them appropriately. This issue occurred because the papers were submitted for publication simultaneously, and we omitted to inform the respective editors of the existence of the other paper. Furthermore, when the papers were ultimately accepted for publication, we neglected to correct the record. We apologize for any inconvenience caused. As senior author I accept sole responsibility for this regrettable error.

Pages R566–R572: Ariel Shabtay and Zeev Arad: “Reciprocal activation of HSF1 and HSF3 in brain and blood tissues: is redundancy developmentally related?” (http://ajpregu.physiology.org/cgi/content/full/291/3/R566). The right panel of Fig. 3B (HS) was missing the yellow granules. The figure below is correct.
