Correction for ‘Metabolomic profiles delineate the potential role of glycine in gold nanorod-induced disruption of mitochondria and blood–testis barrier factors in TM-4 cells’ by Bo Xu et al., Nanoscale, 2014, 6, 8265–8273.


The authors have noticed an error in Fig. 4A, whereby the published version displays incorrect images for ‘Hoechst’, ‘Permeability’, ‘Cytochrome C’ and ‘Mitochondrial Membrane Potential’ for the ‘0’ group. The corrected version of Fig. 4 is provided below. The authors confirm that all of the results and conclusions of the article remain unchanged.

Fig. 4 Representative images from the HCS after GNR exposure to TM-4 cells. (A) Staining for nuclei (blue), cell membrane permeability (green), cytochrome c (yellow) and mitochondrial membrane potential (red). Images were acquired with an ArrayScan HCS Reader with a 20× objective. (B) The relative expressions of nuclear size, permeability, cytochrome c and mitochondrial membrane potential. *Indicates significant difference when the values were compared to that of the control (p < 0.05).

The Royal Society of Chemistry apologises for these errors and any consequent inconvenience to authors and readers.
