Consequently, text referring to the incorrect references needed to be corrected. In the sentence “In corroboration with previous reports, we find that circFndc3b interacts with FUS, an RNA binding protein that acts as a tumor suppressor gene in many human cancers45”, the statement “that acts as a tumor suppressor gene in many human cancers45” was incorrect and has been removed. In the sentence “Furthermore, recent studies demonstrated exogenous FUS gene delivery significantly inhibits tumor growth49 by activating APAF-1 induced apoptosis and inhibiting angiogenesis by reducing VEGF-A expression46”, the statement “by activating APAF-1 induced apoptosis and inhibiting angiogenesis by reducing VEGF-A expression46” was incorrect and has been removed. This has been corrected in the PDF and HTML versions of the Article.
