Erratum

Erratum:

The original version of this article [1] unfortunately contained a mistake. The information in Table 1 was misrepresented.

In Table 1 in the information related to Alex2 clone, E63K should read E69K and in the information related to Alex3 clone, R276L (c.827G>T) should read L264P (c.791_792TG>CT). Additionally, the second column header has been modified from “clinical character” to “Diagnosis”.

An updated version of Table 1 has been provided below.
