Following publication of the original article [1], the authors reported errors in Fig. 2, Fig. 4, Fig. 5 and Fig. 6:

  1. 1.

    The raw data of flow cytometry (Fig. 2, Fig. 4a and Fig. 6b) were disordered.

  2. 2.

    In Fig. 4b, a wrong image of TUNEL staining of HK-2 cells in the normal group was chosen.

  3. 3.

    In Fig. 5a, the blots of BCL-2 in TCMK-1 and HK-2 were duplicated by unintentional error. In addition, the authors mistakenly chose the same images in cleaved caspase-9 and cleaved caspase-3 blots in the TCMK-1 group.

The incorrect and correct figure are included in this Correction article. The original article has been updated.
