Interpretive Summary: The coauthors of a previously published work wish to correct our 2008 paper. Some details specified in the methods section for data presented in two of the tables were not completely accurate. A more accurate description of the methods is described here. Another paper from our laboratory published in the same issue of the journal as this erratum repeats and reinterprets the results of the 2008 paper.

Technical Abstract: The coauthors of previously published work correct details from a 2008 publication. Specifically, it was incorrectly indicated in the methods section for data presented in Tables 2 and 3 that this experiment was the result of three replicates. These data were not the result of three replicate experiments as indicated but rather those of a single experiment with three duplicates. Another paper from our laboratory published in the same issue of the journal as this erratum repeats and reinterprets the results of the 2008 paper.
