The authors of the original article “miR-4454 up-regulated by HPV16 E6/E7 promotes invasion and migration by targeting ABHD2/NUDT21 in cervical cancer” (Biosci Rep (2020) 40(9); https://doi.org/10.1042/BSR20200796) would like to correct Figure 5. Due to their negligence, they had placed an incorrect image in Figure 5F (Caski; miR-mimics+sh-NUDT21). Figure 5F (Caski; miR-inhibitors+sh-ABHD2) had been duplicated in this panel in error. The correct figure is present in this Correction.

miR-4454 regulates invasion and migration in HPV16 cells through functional target ABHD2/NUDT21in vitro

(A) Statistical analysis of invasion in human cervical cancer C33A cells treated with miR-4454 mimics, miR-4454 mimics with sh-ABHD2/NUDT21, miR-4454 inhibitors, and miR-4454 inhibitors with sh-ABHD2/NUDT21. (B) Statistical analysis of invasion in human cervical cancer CaSki cells treated with miR-4454 mimics, miR-4454 mimics with sh-ABHD2/NUDT21, miR-4454 inhibitors, and miR-4454 inhibitors with sh-ABHD2/NUDT21. (C) Transwell assay was used to detect cell invasion in C33A and CaSki cells. (D) Statistical analysis of migration in human cervical cancer C33A cells treated with miR-4454 mimics, miR-4454 mimics with sh-ABHD2/NUDT21, miR-4454 inhibitors, and miR-4454 inhibitors with sh-ABHD2/NUDT21. (E) Statistical analysis of migration in human cervical cancer CaSki cells treated with miR-4454 mimics, miR-4454 mimics with sh-ABHD2/NUDT21, miR-4454 inhibitors, and miR-4454 inhibitors with sh-ABHD2/NUDT21. (F) Transwell assay was used to detect cell migration in C33A and CaSki cells.
