There is an accidental repeat of the overlap and bright field microscope images in Fig. 3B and E (second and third panels of each). However, the actual fluorescence images (first panels of Fig. 3B and E) are different and demonstrate minimal background uptake of the randomized RNA pool, both on ice and at 37 1C. The fluorescence data appropriately support the claim in the paper, on page 393, that ‘‘As with flow cytometry, little fluorescence was observed in negative controls (unselected N62 pool RNA-GNP on ice and at 37 1C; Fig. 3B and E)’’. Following further investigation, the authors have concluded that the overlay corresponds to the fluorescence data in Fig. 3E. Therefore, Fig. 3B erroneously includes the overlay and bright field data from Fig. 3E. The Royal Society of Chemistry apologises for these errors and any consequent inconvenience to authors and readers.
