The second paragraph in the section Materials and methods entitled, “Construction of plasmid pLGC09” was wrong and should read:
“Three modules were obtained: First, to construct the lytic module, the promoter Pcctα amplified from the genomic DNA of S. cerevisiae (amplicon YL1; Table 2 shows the corresponding primers used to amplify each amplicon, i.e. YL1-F and YL1-R to amplify amplicon YL1) was cloned in pCR®4Blunt-TOPO® (using the Zero Blunt® TOPO® PCR Cloning Kit for Sequencing (Invitrogen) following the instructions of the supplier; pLGC01), the gene eng amplified from the genomic DNA of P. pastoris GS115 (amplicon YL2) was cloned in PmeI digested pLGC01 using T4 DNA Ligase to obtain pLGC03. This plasmid digested with XhoI and aox1 TT amplified from pGAPZαA (Invitrogen; amplicon YL3) digested with SalI were ligated together (Table 2 shows the restriction sites used to construct the module, the joining of XhoI to SalI digested ends are cohesive but their joining does not let the restriction sites to be regenerated), and amplified using primers YL1-F and YL3-R (amplicon YL1-YL3; lytic module). The amplicon was cloned in pCR®4Blunt-TOPO® (pLGC05). Second, the selection marker module consisted of a fragment containing the promoters Ptef1 and PEM7, ble, and the cyc1 TT was directly amplified from pGAPZαA (amplicon YL4). Third, the full-length leu2 gene including its promoter and transcription terminator was amplified from the genomic DNA of P. pastoris (amplicon YL5) to be the integration module. The last two modules were cloned each in pJET1.2/blunt using the Clone-JET™ PCR Cloning Kit (Fermentas; Waltham, MA, USA; pLGC06 and pLGC07, respectively) according to the instructions of the manufacturer. The plasmid containing the selection marker module was digested with PmlI, ligated to the plasmid including the integrative module digested with NaeI (both enzymes produce blunt ends), and amplified through PCR using the primers YL4-F and YL5-R. The two-modules amplicon was cloned in pCR®4Blunt-TOPO® (pLGC08). The final construction was assembled by subcloning the fragment NotI–PmlI from the plasmid including the selection marker and integration modules in NotI–NruI digested pCR®4Blunt-TOPO®-lytic module using classical restriction and ligation techniques (Sambrook and Russell 2001), obtaining at last the vector pLGC09 (details on the construction strategy, and pLGC09 data could be consulted in Additional files 1, 2).”
Table 2 was corrected, including the sequences of the primers used to construct pLGC09.
