In the original publication of this manuscript [1], Fig. 2 contains incorrect labels and feedback loops. The revised version of Fig. 2 is shown below.

Reciprocal feedback loops between HIF-1α and ncRNAs. In addition to a unidirectional regulation pattern, there are several direct or indirect feedback loops between HIF-1α and ncRNAs. It seems quite feasible that the ncRNAs, HIF-1α and other co-operators would eventually intertwine to form mutually reciprocal feedback loops in both positive and negative manners. In addition to common feedback loops, lincRNA-p21 and HISLA can block VHL- and PHD-dependent HIF-1α repression instead of directly interacting with HIF-1α and other co-operators

In the first paragraph of the ‘Negative feedback loop between HIF-1α and ncRNA’ section, there are two instances of ‘miR-439’; these should instead read ‘miR-429’.
