  1. Correction to final paragraph of the discussion

    The authors regret a typographical error in the final paragraph of the discussion section of this manuscript. In the following sentences, haplotype B is incorrectly identified: "The two low risk haplotypes (haplotype A, Ser-Arg-Ser; and haplotype B , Ser-Gln-Ser) differ only at the middle amino acid, 166- this amino acid is unlikely to functionally influence PERK activation. The low and high risk (Haplotype B, Cys-Gln-Cys ) haplotypes differ at both positions 166 and 704..."

    Haplotype D, Ser-Gln-Ser, is a low risk haplotype. Haplotype B, Cys-Gln-Ala (not Cyn-Gln-Cys as the above sentence states), is the higher risk haplotype. We apologize for any confusion.
