It has been brought to our attention that Fig. 5a showing the vasculature in islets of control flox mice is not in fact an endocrine cell but, rather, exocrine tissue. In the new Fig. 5a presented here we show the vasculature adjacent to pancreatic beta cells of control flox mice. In addition, × 5000 image in the left-hand panel of Fig. 5b is replaced by a lower-resolution image (× 3000) to provide a broader cellular context.

Vascular structure of islets from VE-PDPK1-KO mice and control flox mice. Electron microscopic images showing capillaries surrounded by pancreatic beta cells in (a) control flox mice and (b) VE-PDPK1-KO mice. EC, endothelial cells. Images are representative of four mice. Magnification × 5000 (a, left) or × 3000 (b, left) scale bars, 1 μm; or × 10,000 (right), scale bars, 500 nm
