A corrigendum on
A Putative Type II Secretion System Is Involved in Cellulose Utilization in Cytophaga hutchisonii

by Wang, X., Han, Q., Chen, G., Zhang, W., and Liu, W. (2017). Front. Microbiol. 8:1482. doi: 10.3389/fmicb.2017.01482

In the original article Zhu et al. (2017) was not cited in the article. The citation has now been inserted in Materials and Methods, Plasmids Constructions, Paragraph 1 and Table 1 and should read:

To generate the pYT3198 plasmid, two DNA fragments corresponding to approximately 2 kb of chu_3198 up- and downstream regions were amplified from C. hutchinsonii chromosomal DNA with the primers 3198upF/3198upR, and 3198downF/3198downR, respectively, and ligated into the pYT313 plasmid (Zhu et al., 2017).

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