Following publication of the original article , the authors identified the following errors.
In the first paragraph of the Results/PTEN is downregulated in HCC and correlates with poor prognosis of HCC section, “tumor classification and metastasis” should be replaced with “tumor size, classification and metastasis”.
In the Results/Overexpression of PTEN inhibits Warburg effect and maintains mitochondrial function in HCC cells section, “a decreased proportion of red to green fluorescence” should be revised to “increased proportion of red to green fluorescence and recovered mitochondrial function”.
In the legend of Fig. 3 “Ratio of red/green fluorescence intensity” should be changed to “Mitochondrial membrane potential ΔΨ”.
Further to this, the following change have been made to the Figs. 1, 2, 3, and 4.
Figure 1: A and B, group typesetting name is inverted. The correct sequence is from left to right: adjacent to cancer, liver cancer, and also marked with PTEN and PI3K
Figure 3: C, vector NC and OE PTEN group image typesetting and statistical errors, I revised the image typesetting
Figure 4: the statistics of averctor NC and OE PTEN group are wrong. I revised the picture layout again
