Following publication of the original article [1], the authors reported that they had misspelt the name of a cell line and supplied the incorrect Fig. 7 for publication.

The correct name of the cell line should be Hep3B, instead of HepB3. The correct figure is displayed below. The results and conclusions described therein are not affected by these corrections. The authors sincerely apologize for the error.

Fig. 7

Effect of miR-221 on cell growth and apoptosis of HCC Hep3B cells by Hoechst 33342/propidium iodide (PI) double fluorescent chromatin staining. HCC Hep3B cells were transfected with miR-221 inhibitor, mimic and different controls for 96 h and the cells were observed under microscope with Hoechst 33342/PI double fluorescent chromatin staining, × 200
