In the article cited above, the authors miscategorized CD59 as a transmembrane protein when it is in fact a glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchored surface protein. The sentence on page 2367 in the last paragraph of the first column was corrected to read: CD59, a major regulator of the complement activity, is a glycosylphosphatidylinositol- anchored membrane protein that binds to the C5-8 complex and inhibits assembly of C9 monomers into the terminal complement complex, thus protecting cells from complement-mediated injury (33). The error does not change the results or conclusions of the article. The online version of the article has been corrected to reflect these changes.
