Following publication of the original article , the authors would like to correct a formula from “T > C” to “C > T” in two paragraphs.
In the third paragraph of the section Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and frontotemporal dementia (FTD), the correct sentence should be:
However, the synonymous C > T substitution in SMN2 exon 7 alters an exonic splicing enhancer into an exonic splicing silencer, which predominantly leads to an unstable transcript missing exon 7.
In the fourth paragraph of the section Splice-switching AOs, the correct sentence should be:
The C > T substitution in SMN2 creates an exon-splicing silencer and leads to the omission of exon 7 and an unstable SMN protein that is subject to rapid ubiquitinproteasome degradation.
In addition, the authors identified an error in Fig. 4. The correct figure is given below:
The original article  has been corrected.
