Figure 3 mislabelled (Scott Edmunds, 18 January 2008)

Due to some formatting problems the labelling of the x- and y-axes in Figure 3 is currently mislabelled in the PDF version. The full-text is correct. Until this is corrected please note:The x-axis should be labelled: [S](µM)The y-axis should be labelled: v (µM/min) read full comment

Additional results with double targeting (Annemieke Aartsma-Rus, 09 August 2007)

We have previously reported similar findings (Mol Ther 2006, 14(3):401-7, Aartsma-Rus et al. “Exploring the frontiers of therapeutic exon skipping for Duchenne muscular dystrophy by double targeting within one or multiple exons.” In the study described there we have analyzed the effect of using combinations of AONs for exons that were not, poorly and efficiently skippable with individual AONs. We observed that using non overlapping AONs high skipping levels of previously unskippable exons 47 and 57 could be induced. In addition, skipping levels were significantly enhanced for the poorly skippable exon 45. However, combining AONs targeting exons that could already be efficiently skipped with single AONs did not... read full comment

Incorrect citation (Andrea Brancaccio, 05 July 2007)

Ref. 2 has been erroneously repeated twice, the second time with the number 17. Therefore, Ref. 17 was instead intended to refer to the following paper:Jung D, Yang B, Meyer J, Chamberlain JS, Campbell KP: Identification and characterization of the dystrophin anchoring site on beta-dystroglycan.

Missing Table (Raffael Schaffrath, 05 December 2006)

In the Method section of this paper, the authors state that all used yeast strains can be found in Table 6. So far, I was not able to retrieve that Table or information and I really would like to know about it.Sincerely yours,Raffael Schaffrath read full comment

Methodology - explanation reqd... (Natarajan Ganesan, 21 April 2006)

How is the match found for a given sequence? Do you connect the program to a database of restriction enzymes? I couldnt find the description in Methods.Whatever be the approach to find a match, I feel the need to connect a restriction enzyme database to compute the ideal enzyme and an ideal insert.As I see, one possible approache would allow the user to select an enzyme and then look for a match that retains the amino-acid sequence (using degeneracy).
