DescriptionzIs356 [daf-16p::daf-16a/b::GFP + rol-6(su1006)]. Daf-c, Rol, Fluorescent DAF-16::GFP, Age, increased resistance to heat and UV. Grows and reproduces slowly. Maintain at 20C. Integrated by gamma irradiation of extrachromosomal (Ex daf-16::GFP) line. This strain cannot be distributed to commercial organizations. This strain cannot be used for any commercial purpose or for work on human subjects. April 2005: Corrigendum: daf-16 integrates developmental and environmental inputs to mediate aging in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans. Joshua McElwee of University College London has brought to our attention that plasmid pGP30 described in Henderson and Johnson (Current Biology 11, 1975-1980, December 2001) contains a mutation. We have confirmed the mutation in our own traces from the original sequence. Using daf-16a2 cDNA as a reference sequence (genbank accession number AF020343), pGP30 contains an A to T transversion at AF020343 position 1747:(TTCCCGATCAGCCACTGATGG(a/t)ACTATGGATGTTGATGCATTGA). This mutation results in an GAT (asp) to GTT(val) change at position 484 of the translated AF020343 sequence. The DAF-16::GFP (green fluorescent protein) protein encoded by pGP30 rescues a daf-16 null phenotype and behaves similarly to other reported DAF-16 fusion constructs (Lee et al., 2001; Lin et al., 2001). Therefore, we do not feel it alters the conclusions of the paper. We regret any inconvenience this may have caused. Samuel T. Henderson* and Thomas E. Johnson². ²Correspondence: Lee, R.
