Several editorial errors occurred in the article listed above. On page 615, the sentences “Additional experiments were performed using db/db mice retinas” and “The streptozotocin-induced db/db mice were maintained for 8 weeks, then one eye of each animal was processed for frozen sections and the retina of the other eye was frozen for protein analysis” should read, respectively, as follows: “Additional experiments were performed using diabetic mice retinas” and “The streptozotocin-induced diabetic mice were maintained for 8 weeks, then one eye of each animal was processed for frozen sections and the retina of the other eye was frozen for protein analysis.” On page 619, the sentence “It recently was reported that retinas from nondiabetic or db/db mice neither produce leukotrieness nor 5-lipoxygenase mRNA (37)” should read as follows: “It recently was reported that retinas from nondiabetic or diabetic mice neither produce leukotrienes nor 5-lipoxygenase mRNA (37).” The online version reflects these changes.
