A corrigendum on
Using Aiptasia as a Model to Study Metabolic Interactions in Cnidarian-Symbiodinium Symbioses

by Rädecker, N., Raina, J.-B., Pernice, M., Perna, G., Guagliardo, P., Kilburn, M. R., et al. (2018). Front. Physiol. 9:214. doi: 10.3389/fphys.2018.00214

During submission of the final version of the manuscript for publication, a previous version of Figure 3 was accidentally uploaded. The labeling of this previous Figure version does not match the annotation in the figure legend. The correct version of Figure 3 and its legend appear below. The authors sincerely apologize for the error. This error does not change the scientific conclusions of the research article.


Figure 3. NanoSIMS imaging and quantification of cell-specific carbon (as 13C-bicarbonate) and nitrogen (as 15N-ammonium) assimilation within the Aiptasia–Symbiodinium symbiosis. Representative images of the distribution of 13C/12C ratio (A–D) and of 15N/14N ratio (I–L) within the Aiptasia holobiont are displayed as Hue Saturation Intensity (HSI). The rainbow scale indicates the 13C/12C and 15N/14N ratio, respectively. Blue colors indicate natural abundance isotope ratios shifting toward pink with increasing 13C and 15N incorporation levels, respectively. For each NanoSIMS image, the δ13C (E–H) and δ15N (M–P) enrichment were quantified for individual Regions Of Interest (ROIs) that were defined in OpenMIMS by drawing (I) the contours of the symbionts, and circles covering (II) the adjacent host tissue and (III) the host lipid bodies. Scale bars represent 10 μm. Sym, Symbiodinium cell; Host, tissue (host); Lip, lipid body (host). All data shown as mean ± SE (n = 20 ROIs each). Different letters above bars indicate significant differences between groups (p < 0.05).
