In our paper [1], the images of TGF-β1+let-7d groups in Figure 7I have misused that of the Control group. The correct version of the figure appears below.

 Figure 7 

Overexpression of let-7d abrogated fibrogenesis in CFs. (A) Decreased expression of let-7d in CFs pretreated with TGF-β1, Ang II or serum. *p<0.05 and **p<0.01 vs. control; (B) Expression of let-7d in CMs and CFs. *p<0.05 vs. CMs. Inhibition of let-7d increased collagen 1α1 and collagen 3α1 mRNA expression (C) and promoted fibrogenesis (D) in CFs. *p<0.05 and **p<0.01 vs. NC. (E) Representative immunofluorescence images showing that suppression of let-7d promoted the transition of fibroblasts into myofibroblasts. Overexpression of let-7d mitigated TGF-β1-induced cell proliferation (F), collagen production (G), fibrogenesis (H) and the fibroblast-myofibroblast transition (I). *p<0.05 and **p<0.01 vs. control; #p<0.05 and ##p<0.01 vs. TGF-β1. Forced expression of let-7d alleviated 20% serum-driven proliferation (J) and fibrogenesis (K) in CFs. *p<0.05 and **p<0.01 vs. control; #p<0.05 and ##p<0.01 vs. serum. n=5-6 independent cell cultures.
