Author Correction: REV-ERB in GABAergic neurons controls diurnal hepatic insulin sensitivity

The Original Article was published on 24 March 2021

Correction to: Nature online 24 March 2021

We would like to add more information to this Article about the knockout mice used, to increase clarity and transparency. The sentence ‘The REV-ERB-α allele generates a truncated protein without a DNA-binding domain8 upon Cre recombination and, therefore, could lead to a functionally hypomorphic knockout and/or have effects on transcription that are independent of DNA binding.’ has thererfore been added after the sentence ‘To assess the function of REV-ERB-α and REV-ERB-β in GABAergic neurons, we generated mice with a GABAergic-neuron-specific knockout of REV-ERB-α and REV-ERB-β (hereafter, knockout mice) by crossbreeding Nr1d1loxPNr1d2loxP double-floxed mice7,8 with Vgat-ires-cre (vgat-cre) mice.’. The original Article has been corrected online.
