Erratum to: Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors of Bothrops jararaca snake venom affect the structure of mice seminiferous epithelium

Unfortunately, the original version of this article [1] contained an error. The conclusion was included incorrectly. The conclusion has been corrected in the original article and is also included correctly below.

Conclusion

Overall, the results obtained from the proline-rich snake-venom oligopeptide suggest that the alterations in the structure of the seminiferous epithelium in mice following BPP-10c and BPP-AP treatment, but not treatment with BPP-11e, are dependent on their primary molecular structure. This study offers new perspectives for the elucidation of possible mechanisms involved in the impairment of spermatogenesis by BPP-10c and BPP-AP, thereby providing new insight into the biological features of the snake venom.
