In the above Perspective article, we inadvertently misquoted the Paquette et al. (2008) study in the section ‘‘NHR Signaling and Fatty
Acid Desaturation in Germline-Mediated Longevity.’’ In the fourth paragraph, the statement ‘‘Interestingly, nhr-80 and PPARa are
upregulated in response to germline ablation in worms and ovariectomy in mice, respectively’’ is incorrect and should read
‘‘Interestingly, fat-6 and SCD1 are upregulated in response to germline ablation in worms and ovariectomy in mice, respectively.’’
In the fifth paragraph, the statement ‘‘Thus, both SCD1 and PPARa are upregulated upon ovariectomy and SCD1 and LXR are
downregulated upon treatment with sex steroid hormones in mammals’’ is incorrect and should read ‘‘SCD1 is upregulated upon
ovariectomy and SCD1 and LXR are downregulated upon treatment with sex steroid hormones in mammals.’’ We regret our error
and apologize for any inconvenience it may have caused.
