A corrigendum on
Biochemistry and genetics of ACC deaminase: a weapon to “stress ethylene” produced in plants

by Singh, R. P., Shelke, G. M., Kumar, A., and Jha, P. N. (2015). Front. Microbiol. 6:937. doi: 10.3389/fmicb.2015.00937

We mistakenly did not cite the reference Gontia-Mishra et al. (2014) in the text. Please find the following corrected paragraph with the given citation in the appropriate place. The full citation is also written below for inclusion in the reference list.

As reviewed in Gontia-Mishra et al. (2014), among eukaryotes, production of ACCD is well evident in some fungi, which include a few species of yeast such as Hansenula saturnus (Minami et al., 1998), Issatchenkia occidentalis (Palmer et al., 2007), other fungal species namely Penicillium citrinum and Trichoderma asperellum, and a stramnopile, Phytophthora sojae (Jia et al., 1999; Viterbo et al., 2010; Singh and Kashyap, 2012). Recently, ACCD activity has also been observed in certain plants such as Arabidopsis thaliana, poplar, and tomato plant (McDonnell et al., 2009; Plett et al., 2009).
