After publication of the original article [1], the authors have notified us of 5 errors which are highlighted below. The authors apologize for any inconvenience.
  1. 1.

    “ca-199 (tissue) (U/mL)” in Table 1 was incorrectly presented and should be replaced with “ca-199 (serum) (U/mL)”.

  2. 2.

    “miR-143-3p” in Table 2 was a mistake in spelling and should be replaced with “miR-149-3p”.

  3. 3.
    We have corrected the 48h representation in Fig. 5.
    Fig. 5
    Fig. 5

    MiR-149-3p suppressed GC cell proliferation and migration. a, b The CCK-8 assays were performed in SGC-7901 and MGC-803 cells transfected with mimics or miR-NC (Two-way ANOVA). c, d The wound healing assays were performed in SGC-7901 and MGC-803 cells transfected with mimics or miR-NC. Mimics: 149-3p mimics; miR-NC: miR-149-3p negative control. *P < 0.05; **P < 0.01

  4. 4.
    We have corrected the cell migration vector representation and the cell invasion LV-Z+miR-149-3p representation in Fig. 8.
    Fig. 8
    Fig. 8

    MiR-149-3p partially abolished GC cell migration and invasion induced by ZEB1-AS1. a, b ZEB1-AS1-induced cell migration and invasion were partly abrogated by miR-149-3p (Two-way ANOVA). *P < 0.05; **P < 0.01

  5. 5.

    The primer sequences with red color were out-of-order for the wrong type setting of Microsoft Word. Accordingly, we corrected it.
