After the publication of the article, concerns were raised about Fig 4A in the article, as follows: In panel P-GSK-3, the NG lane and the VEGF + VEGFRI lane are duplicated. In panel GSK-3, the VEGF and VEGF+VEGFRI lanes duplicate the HG-1d and HG-3d lanes. The authors have acknowledged errors in the preparation of these panels. Following evaluation of the data provided by the authors and an investigation by the University of Georgia, we are issuing a correction to correct Fig 4. The corrected figure and raw data for the results are included in this Correction. The authors apologize for the errors in the original figure.
