The bacterial name “Lactococcus alimentarius” in Fig. 2 is incorrectly presented. The correct name is “Lactobacillus alimentarius.”
In the paragraph on “Genetic organization and regulation of glycerol metabolism genes in lactic acid bacteria,” the G3P-oxidizing enzyme and its corresponding gene in Lactococcus lactis subsp. cremoris and Lactobacillus alimentarius are incorrectly substituted. The corrected sentences are as follows:
However, the phylogenetic tree analysis of the LAB listed in Table 1 indicated that Lactococcus lactis subsp. cremoris and Lactobacillus alimentarius contain GlpA and GlpD, respectively (Fig. 2). LAB’s glpO or L. lactis subsp. cremoris’s glpA constitute operons along with the glpK and glpF (encoding glycerol facilitator protein GlpF), except for L. alimentarius’s glpD (Fig. 3).
In Table 1, “glpD” of Lactococcus lactis subsp. cremoris in the G3P oxidation column is incorrect; the correct term is “glpA.” The glpA encodes anaerobic G3P dehydrogenase subunit A.
In Fig. 3a, the “glpKDF operon” is incorrect; the correct term is “glpKAF operon.”
In Table 2, “glpKDF” of Lactococcus lactis subsp. cremoris in the operon column is incorrect; the correct term is “glpKAF.”
In Table 2, the strain name “SF11” of Lactococcus lactis subsp. cremoris is incorrectly presented. The correct strain name is “SK11.”
