A corrigendum on
FVB/NJ Mice Are a Useful Model for Examining Cardiac Adaptations to Treadmill Exercise

by Gibb, A. A., McNally, L. A., Riggs, D. W., Conklin, D. J., Bhatnagar, A., and Hill, B. G. (2016). Front. Physiol. 7:636. doi: 10.3389/fphys.2016.00636

In the original article, there was an error. We state in the Materials and Methods that “At the conclusion of the study and 24 h after the last exercise session, the mice were fully anesthetized with sodium pentobarbital (40 mg/kg, i.p.), followed by euthanasia via excision of the heart.” The amount of sodium pentobarbital used was 150 mg/kg not 40 mg/kg. A correction has been made to the Materials and Methods. The second to last sentence of the paragraph in the Animals subsection has been changed to:

“At the conclusion of the study, and 24 h after the last exercise session, the mice were fully anesthetized with sodium pentobarbital (150 mg/kg, i.p.), followed by euthanasia via excision of the heart.” The authors apologize for this error, which does not change the scientific conclusions of the article in any way.
