Correction for de Beco et al., Endocytosis is required for E-cadherin redistribution at mature adherens junctions

Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S. A. 106, 7010-7015). The authors wish to note the following: "We have found that the MCF7 cell line we engineered to stably express human Ecadherin-GFP expressed the murine E-cadherin gene instead. This mistake does not have any substantial impact on our conclusions. The main conclusion of our work is that endocytosis is required for E-cadherin redistribution at mature adherens junctions. This demonstration is fully drawn from experiments done in homologous

The results obtained with the MCF7 E-cadherin-GFP cell line demonstrate that E-cadherin dynamics is also driven by endocytosis in another species, with human epithelial cells. It is unlikely that this conclusion is compromised by the fact that these human cells express a murine E-cadherin, and not a human E-cadherin, for the following reasons:
