In the above article, all mentions of “cartilage intermediate-layer protein” refer to “cartilage intermediate-layer protein 2.” The isoform number was misstated in the abstract and one place in the text (fourth paragraph from the end), while it was correctly identified elsewhere in the text and in Table 2.

In addition, the reference originally numbered 37 [van Nieuwenhoven FA, Munts C, Op’t Veld RC, et al. Cartilage intermediate layer protein 1 (CILP1): a novel mediator of cardiac extracellular matrix remodelling. Sci Rep 2017;7: 16042] was cited in error; it has been removed and the subsequent references renumbered.

The authors apologize for the errors. The online version of the article ( has been corrected.
