A corrigendum on
Arabidopsis Fructokinases Are Important for Seed Oil Accumulation and Vascular Development

by Stein, O., Avin-Wittenberg, T., Krahnert, I., Zemach, H., Bogol, V., Daron, O., et al. (2017). Front. Plant Sci. 7:2047. doi: 10.3389/fpls.2016.02047

Error in Figure 1

In the original article, there was a mistake in Figure 1 as published. The gene ID for AtFRK3 and AtFRK4 that were used in the mega4 software for creating the phylogenetic tree were incorrect. AtFRK3 (At3g59480) should read AtFRK3 (At1g06020) and AtFRK4 (At4g06030) should read AtFRK4 (At3g59480) as in the text, Table S1 and uniprot annotation for arabidopsis probable fructokinases. The corrected Figure 1 appears below. The authors apologize for this error and state that this does not change the scientific conclusions of the article in any way.


Figure 1. Phylogenetic relationships between tomato and Arabidopsis fructokinases. Phylogenetic evolutionary analysis was conducted using MEGA version 4 (Tamura et al., 2007). This phylogenetic tree is based on the following protein sequences: SlFRK1 (NP_001233893), SlFRK2 (NP_001233888), SlFRK3 (NP_001234396), SlFRK4 (NP_001234206), At5g51830 (NP_199996), At1g66430 (NP_564875), At4g10260 (NP_192764), At3g59480 (NP_191507), At1g06030 (NP_172093), At1g06020 (NP_172092), and At2g31390 (NP_180697).
