Following publication of the original article , it came to the attention of authors that the definition of the term “isolated hypercholesterolemia” used frequently in the article is missing. In this paper, authors define isolated hypercholesterolemia as a hypercholesterolemia without an accompanying hypertriglyceridemia. Therefore, we would like to amend the Background paragraph of the Abstract with the following sentence: “However, it is unknown whether isolated hypercholesterolemia (i.e., hypercholesterolemia without hypertriglyceridemia) disturbs autophagy or the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) pathways.”
In addition, the second sentence of Background section was also incorrectly phrased; which we would like to correct as follows: “The role of atherosclerosis is well studied in these pathologies; however, myocardial effects of hypercholesterolemia is less well understood.”
