      In Fig. 4A, the actin panel for the Northern blot containing spleen, thymus, prostate, testis, ovary, intestine, colon, and leukocyte samples was inadvertently rotated 180°. Since the amount of RNA in each lane was equivalent, this change does not affect the results for the Northern blot detecting ADAMTS-20. Additionally, the actin panels shown in this figure were reused from previous publications describing the hybridization of other human genes to a different set of the same commercial filters used in this article (Multiple Tissue polyA Northern blots, Clontech). This commercial product was guaranteed by the manufacturer to have equal loading (approximately 2 μg of polyadenylated RNA per lane). Therefore, the corrected version of Fig. 4A is provided in which these panels are omitted. The authors apologize for any inconvenience these errors may have caused. This correction does not affect the results or conclusions of this work.
