Correction

It has come to our attention that we have used Asp, rather than the correct annotation of Asn, to indicate Asparagine throughout the text [1].

In the abstract this is corrected to: The N-terminal sequence of elgicin B was Leu-Gly-Asn-Tyr, which corresponded to the partial sequence of the peptide ElgA encoded by elgA.

In the Results section, subsection ‘Analysis of N-terminal amino acid sequence’, all instances of Asp should be replaced with Asn.

We regret any inconvenience that this inaccuracy in the text might have caused.
