Age-dependent Increase in Desmosterol Restores DRM Formation and Membrane-related Functions in Cholesterol-free DHCR24−/− Mice

Erratum to: Neurochem Res (2009) 34:1167–1182 DOI 10.1007/s11064-008-9893-4

Dear Dr. Lajtha:

We received your email concerning republishing data in the Kuehnle et al., paper published in Neurochemical Research (34, 1167-1182). After careful review of the raw data, we indeed found that some Western blots shown had been used in a prior publication (Crameri et al., EMBO J., 25, 432-443). We cannot explain this error and very much regret this oversight. As a result, we propose to retract the publication in Neurochemical Research. I informed the coworkers and they all agreed with this decision. We sincerely apologize for our mistake and any inconvenience this might cause for the journal.
