PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

We correct the N-terminal amino acid sequences of LA-a and LA-b (shown in Figure 4), according to the better quality of data obtained by re-sequencing the proteins. The correct sequences are SEPQXGRDAGGAL for LA-a and SEQQXGRDVGGAL for LA-b (the first residue of both has been corrected). The sequences of recently obtained cDNAs of these have been added into the public DNA databases (accession nos. AB639036 and AB639037).
