A corrigendum on
Insulin resistance and dyslipidemia in low-birth-weight goat kids

by Song, H., Hao, Z., Feng, H., Li, R., Zhang, R., Limesand, S. W., Zhao, Y., and Chen, X. (2024). Front. Vet. Sci. 11:1370640. doi: 10.3389/fvets.2024.1370640

In the published article, there was an error in Figure 6 as published. The dyslipidemia caused by insulin resistance is the main reason to induce the higher circulated fatty acids, resulted in accumulation of fatty acids in skeletal muscle. The liver has no direct effect on lipid accumulation in skeletal muscle.

The corrected picture helps the reader understand the article. The corrected Figure 6 and its caption appear below.

Figure 6

Figure 6. LBW goats contributed to hepatic insulin resistance and had higher FFA in skeletal muscle.

The authors apologize for this error and state that this does not change the scientific conclusions of the article in any way. The original article has been updated.
