In this version of this article that was originally published [1] there was an error with the citation in the line: “…Functional studies suggested that c.536A > G but not c.1648A > C variant might be related to BRCA1-associated pathogenicity by affecting its function in non-homologous end joining (NHEJ) [25]…”

The reference number 25 is incorrect for this citation. The correct reference does not appear in the article, but should be:

Guidugli L, Rugani C, Lombardi G, Aretini P, Galli A, Caligo MA. A recombination-based method to characterize human BRCA1 missense variants. Breast Cancer Red Treat. 2011 125(1):265-72.
