A Corrigendum on
CitE Enzymes Are Essential for Mycobacterium tuberculosis to Establish Infection in Macrophages and Guinea Pigs

by Arora, G., Chaudhary, D., Kidwai, S., Sharma, D., and Singh, R. (2018). Front. Cell. Infect. Microbiol. 8:385. doi: 10.3389/fcimb.2018.00385

Due to an oversight by the authors, there was a mistake in the Figure 7 as published. The wild type H&E stained section at 8 weeks post-infection (56 days) were replaced with the sections obtained from another animal in the same experiment. The correct Figure 7 appears below.

Figure 7. Gross pathological and histopathological analysis of lungs of infected guinea pigs. (A) This panel depicts representative photographs of lungs showing granulomatous lesions from guinea pigs infected with various strains at 4 or 8 weeks post-infection. (B) High-resolution scans (2,400 dpi) of lung sections from infected guinea pigs were performed at 8 weeks post-infection. A representative high-resolution photomicrograph for each group is shown and granulomas are marked by arrows. (C) Images of H & E stained lung sections from guinea pigs at day 28 and 56 post-infection. These images were taken at 40× magnification and show granulomas (G), areas of necrosis (N) and alveolar spaces (AS). (D) Total granuloma score in H&E-stained lung sections of animals infected with wild type or ΔcitE-DM at both 4 and 8 weeks post-infection. Significant differences were observed for the indicated groups (paired two-tailed t-test, *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01).

The authors apologize for this error and state that this does not change the scientific conclusions of the article in any way. The original article has been updated.
