Correction to: Cell Research (2017) 27:830–833;; published online 21 April 2017.

In the initial published version of this article, we inadvertently stated that “all procedures were conducted with the approval and under the supervision of the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) at the University of California, San Diego”. Given that all animal work that was conducted for this project was performed at the City University of Hong Kong and Guangzhou Women and Children's Medical Center, we would like to instead, acknowledge these programs for their oversight of the animal studies. This correction does not affect the description of the results or the conclusions of this work.
