In figure 5A (p. 781) of the article “Intercalation, DNA kinking, and the control of transcription” by M. H. Werner et al. (9 Feb., p. 778), a methyl group was inadvertently placed at the C5 position of the cytosine base and omitted from the thymine base (that is, the A·T base pair was depicted as an A·U base pair and the G·C base pair as a G·5-methylC base pair). Thus, the C base should have a proton at the C5 position and the T base a methyl group at the C5 position. The hydrogen bonding depicted for the two base pairs was correct.
