A corrigendum on
ComX-Induced Exoproteases Degrade ComX in Bacillus subtilis PS-216

by Spacapan, M., Danevčič T., and Mandic-Mulec, I. (2018). Front. Microbiol. 9:105. doi: 10.3389/fmicb.2018.00105

In the original article, there was an error.

Mutants in amyE::PaprE-gfp were constructed by transforming O8G57 genomic DNA (Veening et al., 2008) into appropriate PS-216 strains.

A correction has been made to Materials and methods, Strain Construction:

Mutants with PaprE-gfp were constructed by transforming O8G57 genomic DNA (Veening et al., 2008) into appropriate PS-216 strains.

In the original article, there was a mistake in Table 1, Figure 1, Figure 3, Figure S2, Figure S5, and Figure S7 as published. The genotypic trait Papre-gfp of the strains BM1142, BM1144, BM1443 and BM1448 was incorrectly stated as being amyE::PaprE-gfp.

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

The original article has been updated.
