Correction: Effects of PmaIAA27 and PmaARF15 genes on drought stress tolerance in pinus massoniana

The Original Article was published on 09 October 2023

Correction: BMC Plant Biol 23, 478 (2023)

Following publication of the original article [1], mouse cursors were mistakenly included and appear to be visible in Figs. 2, 3 and 4, and 6.

The corrected figures are provided below:

Fig. 2
figure 1

Coding sequences and derived amino acid sequences of PmaIAA27 (A) and PmaARF15 (B)

Fig. 3
figure 2

Analysis of the secondary structure of the proteins encoded by PmaIAA27 (A) and PmaARF15 (B). Red represents α-helix, yellow and blue arrows represents β-sheet

Fig. 4
figure 3

PmaIAA27 (A) and PmaARF15 (B) encoding protein tertiary structure homology modeling. Orange and blue are aligned amino acid residues for the target and template proteins, respectively, and all other colors are unaligned amino acid residues

Fig. 6
figure 4

Phenotype of PmaIAA27 transgenic tobacco (A) and leaf IAA, PRO contents (B) and Plant height and Stem diameter (C). * indicates that the difference between different temperatures at the same drought level is significant at 0.05 level; ** represents a significant difference at 0.01 level. CK indicates non-transgenic normal plants and TG indicates transgenic plants

The correction does not affect the overall result or conclusion of the article.
