The original article was published in Genes & Nutrition 2014 9:429

Erratum to: Genes Nutr (2014) 9:429 DOI 10.1007/s12263-014-0429-z

Few sentences were erroneously published in the original article. Hence, the authors would like to make the following corrections.

In second paragraph of page 2, the second and fourth sentences are erroneous.

The second sentence reads “However, only two studies addressed the joint role of maternal status of folate and vitamin B12 and MTHFR 677C>T polymorphisms on birth weight.” Instead, it should read “However, only two studies addressed the role of maternal or newborn’s status of folate and vitamin B12 and MTHFR 677C>T polymorphisms on birth weight.”

The fourth sentence reads “Meanwhile, Sukla et al. (2013) found that the maternal MTHFR 677T allele and vitamin B12 and folate deficiencies were independently associated with a twofold increased risk of low birth weight in Indian children.” Instead, it should read “Meanwhile, Sukla et al. (2013) found that the newborn’s MTHFR 677T allele and vitamin B12 and folate deficiencies were independently associated with a two-fold increased risk of low birth weight in Indian children.”

In the first paragraph of page 6, the seventh sentence reads “third trimester of pregnancy, while Sukla et al. (2013) observed that women with deficient plasma vitamin B12 were two times more likely of having a low weight infant than those without this deficiency.” Instead, it should read as pregnancy; while Sukla et al. (2013) observed that newborns with deficient plasma vitamin B12 were two times more likely of having a low weight than those without this deficiency.”
