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.

separation-of-function allele of Plzf already known in rat

Authors state that "Plzf 7t lacks the germ cell depletion phenotypes of all previously reported Plzf alleles." Unfortunately, they have probably not noticed that a similar separation-of-function allele of Plzf has already been reported in polydactulous rat in March 2009 issue of Developmental Dynamics by Liska et al.
