Author Correction: Neddylation of PTEN regulates its nuclear import and promotes tumor development

The Original Article was published on 09 December 2020

Correction to: Cell Research, published online 09 December 2020

We apologize for three errors that we just found in the paper published online on 9 December 2020. The original Fig. 5j was inconsistent with the raw data, and the correct version is provided below. There is an inaccurate label in the original Fig. 9k. The label “Grade (n = 18)” below the immunohistochemical staining images should be “Grade I (n = 18)”. In addition, data in Fig. 9i–k were analyzed by Student’s t-test. “Data were analyzed using the Kruskal-Wallis test” in the original figure legend should be removed. The correct version is shown below. These corrections do not affect the description and conclusion of this article.
