In the article above [Pieper GM, Nilakantan V, Chen M, Zhou J, Khanna AK, Henderson JD Jr, Johnson CP, Roza AM, and Szabó C (2005) J Pharmacol Exp Ther314:53–60], the authors used the compound WW85, whose chemical name and structure were not provided. The policy of The Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics requires that chemical and structural identity be defined. When the Editors became aware of this situation, they asked the authors to provide such information for WW85. To date, the authors have been unresponsive.
The Editors apologize to the readers for both the error and the delay in identifying the compound used in this study. We will diligently continue to try to obtain the chemical and structural identity.
