The authors regret that the following errors have occurred in publication of the above article. 1) In the author listing, the affiliation of the two authors, Ryosuke Fujikane and Masumi Hidaka, was incorrectly indicated. Please see above their correct affiliation.2) In Introduction, there remains a typographical error, “E. coli stains”, which is correctly “E. coli strains”. The legend of Fig. 3. Also includes another typographical error, “NMU”, which is correctly “MNU (N-methyl-N-nitrosourea)”.3) In Fig. 5., the x and y axes are reversely mentioned in its figure legend. Correctly, “The y axis indicates the quantitatively detected amount of each DNA fragment, and the x axis corresponds to its length standardised using co-electrophoresed size markers”.4) In Discussion (“4.2. Genomic instability in MSH2-mutant HeLa cells”), the flap endonucleases, RAD27 and FEN1, are incorrectly mentioned. Since they process flap structures formed at the 5′ ends of Okazaki fragments, “3’” in the corresponding parts should be replaced with “5’ ”, as follows: “ …., failure in 5’-‘flap’ processing has also been pointed out. The 5′ ends of Okazaki fragments often form flap-like structures, ….”.The authors sincerely apologise for these errors and any inconvenience that they may have caused.
