A corrigendum on
The FMRFamide-like peptide family in nematodes

by Peymen, K., Watteyne, J., Frooninckx, L., Schoofs, L., and Beets, I. (2014). Front. Endocrinol. 5:90. doi: 10.3389/fendo.2014.00090

In Figure 1, NLP-1 neuropeptides (not NLP-11 as indicated in Figure 1) are released from AWC olfactory cells and activate the NPR-11 receptor. The AWC-released neuropeptide NLP-1 is stated correctly in the figure legend.

In Table 1, the activity of neuropeptides on C. elegans G protein-coupled receptors is indicated by an EC50 range or by an activity threshold when EC50 values could not be calculated. The activity thresholds are indicated in italic in the corrected Table 1 below.
