In the Original Research article there was an error in the Section “Treatment” under the section “Methods” about the estimated daily intake of pyruvate:
“With the average food intake of 4 g this corresponds to 800 mg of pyruvate/day, which is at the upper range of effective pyruvate doses in earlier in vivo studies (Suh et al., 2005; Fukushima et al., 2009; Isopi et al., 2014).”
As correctly stated in the Abstract, the estimated dose was 800 mg of pyruvate/kg/day.
The corrected version of this section is shown below:
Chronic Pyruvate Administration
The test group (PYR) received experimental chow supplemented with 0.6 % (w) of Na-pyruvate (Safe Diets, Augy, France). The control group (STD) received the same basic rodent chow (A04, Safe Diets). With the average food intake of 4 g this corresponds to 800 mg of pyruvate/kg/day, which is at the upper range of effective pyruvate doses in earlier in vivo studies (Suh et al., 2005; Fukushima et al., 2009; Isopi et al., 2014). Acute pyruvate administration. The mice received Na-pyruvate (Sigma, St. Louis, MO, USA) 500 mg/kg i.p. or the same molar concentration of NaCl (260 mg/kg i.p.). This single dose affords neuroprotection against cortical concussion injury and increases brain glucose and pyruvate levels as measured by in vivo microdialysis (Fukushima et al., 2009). All cage labels about the treatment groups were coded so that the researchers running behavioral tests or assays on post-mortem samples were blinded as to the treatment.
Conflict of Interest Statement
The authors declare that the research was conducted in the absence of any commercial or financial relationships that could be construed as a potential conflict of interest.
