Correction to: Transcriptome profiling of genes related to light-induced anthocyanin biosynthesis in eggplant (Solanum melongena L.) before purple color becomes evident

Correction

After publication of the original article [1] it was noted that in Additional file 1: Table S1, and Fig. 1, specific primer sequences were incorrect, and taken from Sme2.5_02154.1_g00001.1 rather than Sme2.5_13923.1_g00001.1.

The primer sequences of SmCHS refer to the author’s previous study entitled as “Molecular cloning and characterization of anthocyanin biosynthesis genes in eggplant (Solanum melongena L.)” [2], which has been published on Acta Physiologiae Plantarum. In that study, SmCHS was not annotated with the code name from Eggplant Genome Database. However, in the original paper which this Correction refers to, the protein sequence of AtCHS (AT5G13930.1) was employed as a query to search against the Eggplant Genome Database and the results were showed as following:

Sequences producing significant alignments: Score (bits) E-Value
Sme2.5_02154.1_g00001.1 661 0.0
Sme2.5_13923.1_g00001.1 656 0.0

Therefore, the authors had interpreted that SmCHS was Sme2.5_02154.1_g00001.1 in this study.

The correct Additional file 1 and Fig. 1 are included with this manuscript.
