Correction for ‘The mechanism and regularity of quenching the effect of bases on fluorophores: the base-quenched probe method’ by Huihui Mao et al., Analyst, 2018, 143, 3292–3301.


The authors regret that the version of Fig. 6 which appeared in the original manuscript was incorrect, as two of the bars in part D were in the wrong position. The corrected version of Fig. 6 is presented below.

Fig. 6 (A) The model is each probe labeled with FAM that hybridizes to the corresponding complete complementary strand. (B) Curves of fluorescence (F) versus temperature (T) for each base-quenched probe completely complementary to the DNA fragment. (1) T[A with combining low line]; (2) A[T with combining low line]; (3) C[G with combining low line]; (4) G[C with combining low line] (letters representing bases on the complementary strand of the probe are bold and underlined). (C) Derivative melting curves (−dF/dT vs. T) for each base-quenched probe completely complementary to the DNA fragment. (1) T[A with combining low line]; (2) A[T with combining low line]; (3) C[G with combining low line]; (4) G[C with combining low line]. (D) Results of one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA). Four groups of experiments (n = 6 for each group; ANOVA: nsP > 0.05, *P < 0.05). (1) T[A with combining low line]; (2) A[T with combining low line]; (3) C[G with combining low line]; (4) G[C with combining low line].
