Erratum to: evidence for the requirement of 14-3-3eta (YWHAH) in meiotic spindle assembly during mouse oocyte maturation
BMC Developmental Biology volume 14, Article number: 20 (2014)
After publication of this work  we determined that the one of the experiments used an incorrect combination of primary and secondary antibodies. In the Results and Discussion and in the Methods we referred to an experiment which used a goat anti-14-3-3η antibody. In combination with this antibody, a secondary antibody used in the experiment was incorrect. It would, in fact be labeling another secondary in addition to the primary antibody it was intended to label. Therefore, we are not confident of this experiment and would like to remove the section from the results. The intent was only to reaffirm a previous finding. This particular experiment is not critical and does not alter the basic findings or final conclusions of the paper.
In light of this mistake we would ask the reader to disregard the last part of the first paragraph of the Results and Discussion section, beginning with the statement, “In the present study…”. Also, reference to this experiment in the Methods section can also be omitted (the paragraph beginning with: “To confirm …” and the sentences through “…as described in the Results and Discussion section.”). Images in the accompanying Figure 1A-D should be omitted and for clarity we have relabeled the figure as shown below (Figure 1) emphasizing the localization 14-3-3η in the meiotic spindle using the correct combination of a rabbit antibody to 14-3-3η and the correct fluorescent secondary antibody.
