Abstract

The original version of this Article contained errors in Figure 6. In panel o, the labels incorrectly stated ‘Poleθ’ and “Poleθ + DNA” and should be labelled “Polθ” and “Polθ + DNA”. In the result section, in the sub-section entitled “Polθ Promotes MMEJ of Long ssDNA”, the sentence “Importantly, the ability of Polθ- pol to perform MMEJ on short (≤12 nt) ssDNA (Fig. 1p, left; Supplementary Fig. 3D and 3E), and short (≤15 nt) overhangs, demonstrates it performs interstrand pairing without Polθ-hel”. should read as follow: “Importantly, the ability of Polθ-pol to perform MMEJ on short (≤12 nt) ssDNA (Fig. 1p, left; Supplementary Fig. 3D and 3E), and short (≤15 nt) overhangs, demonstrates that it performs interstrand pairing without Polθ-hel”. In the sub-section entitled “Preventing Intrastrand Pairing Stimulates MMEJ by Polθ-Pol”, the sentence “We predicted that preventing base-pairing opportunities between 3' terminal bases and bases upstream along long the 5' region of long ssDNA substrates would suppress intrastrand pairing and enable interstrand pairing by Polθ-pol (Fig. 3c)”. should read as follows: “We predicted that preventing base-pairing opportunities between 3' terminal bases and bases upstream along the 5' region of long ssDNA substrates would suppress intrastrand pairing and enable interstrand pairing by Polθ-pol (Fig. 3c)”. In the method section, in the “Proteins” sub-section the sentence “Polθ-pol, Polθ-hel and RPA were purified as described”. should read as follows: “Polθ-pol and Polθ-hel were purified as described”. These corrections have now been included in the HTML and pdf of the article. Additionally, a technical problem during the publication process resulted in loss of image quality in Figs. 1, 3 and 4. This has now been corrected in both the PDF and HTML versions of the Article.
