Second, we have left out an important step that leads to activation of SLO in our methods section under the heading of “Reversible permeabilization and probe loading”. The additional sentence should read “An aliquot of SLO stock was reduced by 10 mM TCEP (Pierce) for 20 minutes at 37 oC.” and is to be inserted between “A new aliquot was thawed prior to each experiment and used within 5 hr.” and “The SLO stock solution was further diluted to working concentration in DPBS supplemented with 1 mM MgCl2.”. The sentence was present in previous edition of the draft, but was left out due to mistake in editing. We thank the reader for pointing this out to us.

The article has been corrected accordingly.
