Castration delays epigenetic aging and feminizes DNA methylation at androgen-regulated loci. eLife 10:e64932. doi: 10.7554/eLife.64932.

Published 6 July 2021

We were notified via PubPeer of an error in Figure 5. In panel C, the ChIP-seq data for AR Prostate Epithelium was duplicated resulting in identical tracks presented for AR Prostate Epithelium and AR Breast. Upon examining other figures for similar issues, we found duplication in Figure 5 Supplement 1, panel B, where the AR Prostate Epithelium track was again shown in place of FOXP1 Prostate Epithelium.

We predict that these duplications occurred while selecting tracks from the Cistrome database to display on the UCSC genome browse, which retains tracks from previous searches in the viewer regardless of repetition. The inclusion of identical tracks in these figures was an unintentional oversight.

We have since retrieved the correct AR Breast and FOXP1 Prostate Epithelium data and replaced the duplicated tracks.
