The legend of Figure 6 in our original article  is changed to the following description because of an error in the identity of samples:
In accordance with this change, descriptions relevant to this figure: “Changes in the frequency of methylcytosine were also analyzed by digesting the DNA fragments amplified by PCR from bisulfite-treated DNA (Figure six (Figure 1 here)). In this experiment, tolerance of PCR products to digestion indicates lack of methylation of the cytosine at the restriction sites because of the conversion of cytosine by the bisulfite treatment. The results clearly indicated that genistein-treated plants had a lower frequency of methylation at the AluI and MaeII sites in the CaMV 35S promoter than the control plants.” should be moved from page 4, line 48 of the right column, to page 4, line 12 of the left column.
The corrected Figure six (Figure 1 here), in which the profiles of DNA samples that were not adjacent to each other in the original gel are separated by a line, is shown here.
