In the report "Male esterase 6 catalyzes the synthesis of a sex pheromone in Drosophila melanogaster females" by S. D. Mane et al. (28 Oct., p. 419), the third sentence of the first full paragraph in column 2 of page 420 should have read, "Our data show that purified EST 6 can hydrolyze 55 pmole of cVA per minute per microgram of protein." The last sentence in reference 8 on p. 421 should have read, "The specific activity of the final product was 74 µCi/mmole."
