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.

Incorrect citation in article

The final version of the article says: "We did not detect any overt cell fate changes or morphological defects in any of these or other neurons in lin-12(lf), lin-12(gfcs) or lin-12(n137gf) mutant animals (data not shown), consistent with a previous report [47] and supporting our conclusion that lin-12 mediated behavioral changes were not due to developmental defects."

This sentence should cite to reference #41 by Altun-Gultekin, et al. which also finds that altering lin-12 Notch activity does not change neuronal morphology.
